Altered States of Carolina

Back in March of 2010 I woke up after a morning dream and quickly jotted these words down before they faded completely from my mind. This was written more than three years before we even thought to move south… to North Carolina.

“Driving west instead of east

two known strangers in the car

familiar as essences overlap

sharing one body with two souls

Reaching one destination

united with one who does not exist

and parted from one another

with a promised reunion in one

then two, then five days.

Traveling again in exhaustion

heading south instead of north

in a spring that overlaps an

autumn living in the mind.

One person not herself, divided

and conquered with one known

stranger in the car

seeking deliverance in the

altered states of Carolina.”
