Eternal Return

I really love Arizona and
Spent many years of my life there.

One time, I travelled for ten years
Just trying to drive all the roads in the state,
Even though they were always building new ones.
I thought I knew the distance between every city
(there are always more),
The height of every mountain (always eroding),
The population of every town (hordes of migrating souls).

Finally, after a long and lonely absence,
I have returned––
Too much in love with the place
To find my way.
