manifest destiny

my car drove west
but it was alone
in that intention

along a mountain road
rife with native omens

a hawk flew above
clutching a snake

another unwilling passenger
carried away

still alive

with an absolute answer
to the question of
it’s life would end

my pain descending

maps of the northwest territory
with points
red dot delineated

you are here
he is there

a deeper form of love
the lesson given
