High Ways to Pass

The high way 10,000 feet the pass
cycling feet revolutions and change
gears shifting and the pass in hand
a spliff the whiff of weed
tinted windows and an unmarked car
paranoia and road gone by

what a long hard climb ten thousands arrest
attests to the roots of its
state by state we…ed is freed
another divide goes up in smoke
high hopes
descend coast to coast the ten thousands
light up
