be careful with small towns 
they’re easy to hate 

but you stay too long 
see faces again and again 
you feel comfortable 
see yourself retire 

you become a regular 
at the gas station with 
no gas pumps 
filling that styrofoam cup 
shooting the shit 
with the cashier

and let the world 
get small 

it’s a dangerous line
safe and intoxicating 
in the safety 

humanity are ramblers 
so remember 
to ramble
