Road trip, North Bay to Steubenville. Sleep the day, til dusk. Wear jeans, faded and shredded. Throw stuff into the cooler, beer, pop, a couple of sandwiches. Lock the door. Climb down three flights of stairs. Walk around the corner to the car. Get in and drive. Stop in at Little Louie's. Drink beers. Wait for little Tishy. Say, ‘let's go.' Stop by her place. Rev the engine while she throws on a pair of jeans, faded and shredded at the knees. On a deserted stretch of old road listen to Dino croon. Cross the muddied Ohio river at sunrise.
