Poem: ALCAN HIGHWAY, by Sam Ball

I fell in love on the Alcan Highway
A slender black figure with electric blue eyes
Her hair, the color of the clouds
And a blanket on her bosom ran down to an evergreen blouse

I fell in love on the Alcan Highway
In the east, she appeared through a mountaintop shade
Her heart beat a heavenly warmth
That let me weather all my inner earthquakes and Derecho storms

I fell in love on the Alcan Highway
She wore scars on her skin, the toll of untamed landscape
Her voice, of a delicate rain
As she made her way to me, she swayed in a groove of mistral wind

I fell in love on the Alcan Highway
Gunning for the end of the road on the horizon
Chasing my piece of civilization
Blinded by neon lights, memory’s a curse on my god-damned eyes
