Road Warriors

(for John Dorsey and Victor Clevenger)

I am much more the homebody,
a shut-in really,
but these two really pound
the pavement,
hit the road and put in the time
and the miles too.

True road warriors
on their way up to Toledo
after Chicago, New Orleans,
Dallas, California…

With a determination and energy
you can’t help but admire.

One with his signature hat,
the other with a knowing half-grin
you only find on old blues
records.

These two road warriors.

Never finding a way
so much as making
one.
