summer heat

i am driving in the summer heat heat heat
imagining that i am anywhere but here
the wind shifts
and the rain comes
and the lightning moves
from cloud to cloud
i remember where i am
and where i'm going
and where i've been

i don't like that i come back to you
but i could go on forever this way
here i sit cross legged and driving
right back to the place i started from

raindrops leave snail trails on windows
mixing with the dust in my trail
lightning makes treetops in the sky
i'm stuck here alone with only words
saying i told you so, i told you so
blazing onward with a vengeance
to you and to my hometown
