poetry reprint: “ecuador comes to mind”

“ecuador comes to mind”

walking through a darkened hall
ecuador comes to mind
i see her there somehow before
another present time
when things were strange and different then
and we were feelin’ fine,
our time was spent on restless nights
when ecuador comes to mind.

losing myself in someone else
while she is spilling rhyme
looking around for something i found
inside that lady’s eyes
it slips my grasp, now lost control
graspin’ shadows from behind
all of this and more i see
when ecuador comes to mind

held so tight you can’t let go
of foolish thoughts of prime,
searching for some secret cave
warily spending time
the shortest distance between two points
so often not in line,
scattered thoughts and scattered lands
when ecuador comes to mind
