Emptiness in the midst of plenty

Emptiness amid plenty
My mind is where I go
To escape the tragedy of feeling

Getting there
To a place without feeling
I find a wasteland of being
An emptiness
In the midst of plenty

Better the tragedy
Which I can overcome
Than the emptiness
In which I die

Taken during travels, 1997

It has been a very long off-season for much of old Route 66.
