Using a behind-the-ear

algebra class No. 2 pencil,

he rewinds and Alabama mix tape

so it can be played through

pickup truck speakers.

She stares at his feet,

studying what will one day

be carrying her

away from here.

This is an excerpt from my poem, ‘Alabama mix tape and a No. 2 pencil,’ which appears in my collection titled, “Country Songs and Backroad Love Notes” – available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
