The large cities filled with skyscrapers,

filled with small porches - clotheslines wrapping across alleys 

 

The small towns populated by empty storefronts,

abandoned churches and former gas stations 

 

The miles of farmland, rolling green hills

fences, windmillls, brown dirt roads  

 

Mostly empty High School parking lot 

mid summer, two cars next to each other with windows rolled down

 

She is promising you something she doesn't have,

you are listening because you want to believe her
