National Poetry Month 30 Poems in 30 Days Challenge, Poem #11

Isaac Levitan, The Vladimirka Road, 1892. Oil on canvas. The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow.
I've dreamt of you
dusty little stretch of endlessness overgrown
miles empty into themselves back and forward
you nowhere bound road I dragged my aching over

Prison without walls
thousand mile forced march toward the receding horizon
your weight on my tongue like pebbles
insignificant except in accumulation
