17 Miles From Anywhere

17 miles back
 on some dirt
heaven known’s ,where
I am
 I don’t care much
mountains to the north
with snow on top
met a girl last
even, remember her

Just turned on the
radio, Springsteen
riff opening up
 Bruce asking /telling Mary to take
his hand
they’re headed for the promised
screen door slams……
and a cloud of dust swirls
in my rearview
and I don’t care
much, anyhow

Drifting in and out
of these endless ruts
this land of cracks, fissures, faults
and trust
silence now, not even the wind
then the sound of life
a green trail
Sweetwater, I’ve
found…………..17 miles from

I find this a very decent piece of work. I think you could drop S3 and make it stronger. For example, you could end with something like:

and I donít care
much, anyhow
way out here

Nice and gentle local dialect and retrospective tone, even though it is recent past. Anyway, just some thoughts.
