Know-Where, Indiana

 

 

He was thirsty

Walking down the line

Between Know-Where, Indiana

And Some-Where, He-Don’t-Know

 

The boy in his heart

Pretended he was bold

Embracing the pain

Of every single

Stiff-knee step

 

Hard to say you’re lost

When there’s only one road

And two ways

Down each horizon

 

Hard to say you’re lost

When you hit that fork

And wonder,

“What the hell…

…Why not west?”
