on hwy 1


remember the time we went down to big sur

got in a fight about i don't know what


we thought that was the end   

it turned out to be the beginning


i saw on the news tonight

a section of hwy 1 near big sur washed out


it all came back   the fight   the tears   

the sheer drama of it


we didn't know   we thought we were grown up

we weren't


we laugh about it now

but it felt real at the time


because it was real

at the time

A condensed story, elegantly told, and I liked how you used the highway as a motif.
