Passenger’s Side

Passenger’s Side

1920 1279 Amanda N. Butler
Kentucky roadshoulder, blurred –  
where cave rocks are sold beside knives, 
a pair of signs –  
at fifty miles per hour, 
too fast for me to read –  
roadside evangelism implied. 
 
Indiana farmland, blurred –  
speared with pores of wind farms –  
tells me 
JESUS IS REAL –  
black lettering on white backing –  
but I don’t need a billboard 
to tell me that.

  • Love it! I don’t need a billboard to tell me either, but some do. You’d think the marvel of creation itself would tell them.
