The Amber Haze
The long walks at night with heavy an overcast sky shows a distant amber glow.
A long overnight ride on a bus or train, standing watch on the deck of a ship with no land in site, one still can see the amber glow from beyond the horizon.
Wondering who is there and what they are doing. Wondering if it was possible to trade places, to be someone or somewhere else at that very moment.
Cold, empty streets. You can't just go there and have your life change.
Abe Lincoln left this town behind.
