There is a rest stopalongInterstate 64 near my home inPoseyville,IN.I've driven past it lateatnight onseveral occaisions and I'm always impressedby the number of semi-trailer trucks and cars ofpeopletakinglong distance trips. It often reminds me of afrontier camp site,or a western movie stagecoach stop.

Late at night,

the lonely state building

off the Interstate

becomes a growing refuge.

 

There's a driver or two 

pulling in and out behind

one heading for home and

another heading across the country.

 

The truckers grab 

a quick nap

freshen up

and feed the machines out back.

 

Out in the back,

where the truckers are,

lined up in the lot

or stretched out to the road.

 

The big rigs rest

like wandering cowboys with their

trusty 18-wheeled stallions.

at the Interstate way station

the gleaming lights and rumbling,

idling engines of the diesel horses.

 

They'll bed down until daybreak

when they gallop off down the raod.
