Hollow’s echo lives
on this switchback road

far from the one
I traveled young

at the north end
of Laramie mountains

Wind whips dust
into my mouth

No caresses here
No Casper promises

of fairy tale cabin
hiding ‘round the bend

with cousins laughing
and dogs barking

No meatloaf sandwiches
With Kool-Aid chasers

No spidery outhouse
to mock my Sunday best
