Smooth Ride

“Cathy I’m lost I said though I knew she was sleeping / I’m empty and aching and I don’t know why / Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike / They’ve all come to look for America.”

    “Cathy I can’t get a signal, though I knew she could care less / My wireless card’s fucked up and I don’t know why / Counting the PCs on the Jersey Turnpike / They’ve all come to stare at their monitors.”

    I wish I had been there with my iMovie app – would have loved to edit that video with “America” on the fly.

    Is that one of the Huffington Post “Astroturf Express” busses?

    There are empty seats? Hmmmm that doesn’t bode well…

    The farmer sleeps against his wife

    He wonders what their life must be

    A Trailways bus is heading south

    Into Washington, D.C.

    A mother and child, the baby maybe two months old

    Prepare themselves for sleep and feeding.

    The shadow of the Capitol dome slides across his face

    And his heart is racing with the urge to freedom.

    That was the most sickening display.

    Ya know, back when I first moved to DC the Chinatown bus to NYC was the most awesome deal. $20 a trip, nobody knew about it, best kept secret.

    Alas, back then we had far more… colorful individuals on the buses.

    Not so much here. I’ve seen happier funerals.
