Johnny Cash

Once
in a while
in the trouble
between asleep
and awake
and twice this week
she ransacked
the radio for
Johnny’s voice
digging for
her roots stashed
in Kansas City
in San Antone
and Abilene
halfway between
heaven and hell
where both of their
low-toned truths
walk the line.

  1. LOVE this Angie!! You had me instantly with the phrase “in the trouble between asleep and awake”

    In fact, it’s a little wild that you’re channeling music today. I had a friend challenge me (just today) to write a 5 line poem using the next 5 songs I hear on Pandora. Now, I just have to figure out how Blake Shelton can meld with Roxette and Salt and Peppa 😉
