Welcome to Zimmer-zine
The e-zine for all those who are not dead yet!


the highway stretches out
between dots on maps
real only to truckers cb connecting
and to tourists summer tripping
through careful disguises of wannabe
fishermen or backwoods hunters

over the gossip at the post office
and chats at the grocery store
the highway whines
get outtatown get outtatown
at night it wails
doitnow whileyoucan doitnow

at the foot of the town
the lake lies serene
storms at will
recovers evening composure
to serenades sung by frogs
happinessishere touchjoy now

mornings I drive to work
down the highway out of town
knowing later in the day
I'll turn around
come back to cast about
among the wailings and the songs
