The Tropic of Cancer

was still on his mind

a wide open freeway

like a penny in a stream

 

Arizona

is still on his mind

it’s a white Corvette

on a white sand road

 

He packed up October

in a cheap suitcase

he was coming apart

like a cheap suitcase

 

Then some phantom desert wind

took the moments of his life

and blew them all around

 

He’ll always remember

the smell of her perfume

and a turquoise lipstick case

and a turquoise lipstick case

 

He’ll always remember

a turquoise lipstick case

and a cinder block motel

and a cinder block motel

 

Waving from the river

waving from the side

in the fading summer light

in the fading summer light

 

Then some phantom desert wind

took the moments of his life

and blew them all around

 

The Tropic of Cancer

is still on his mind

points along the freeway

like a penny in a stream
