Loads On The Road



Stu's stubby head tough old yellow dump truck
parked by his place            "For Sale"
he's fine, but times and people change.

Those loads of river-run and crushed blue mime rock
in our roadbed            Stu and me
standing talking            engine idling
those days gone now,

days to come.
