Take It Personally
I travel heavy and
keep secrets in deep
pockets of my skull.
Every broke down town
has bottle therapy if you
have enough green in your
wallet to pay for the prescription.
Some like to drink until they're empty.
I tequila to the edge of my teeth,
and give the beer crew just enough
sad song to keep the waitress collecting tips.
I like to wear yellow, collect blue, and keep
whispers at arm’s length… If I don’t answer
your questions, take it personally. My wheels
don’t turn on your dime.

I don't know why this sounds like a trucker speaking, but my muse went there.
