My Last Trip To Joplin (In Haiku)

A long trip of many hours
Music passes time

Extra day to do nothing
Check on myspace here

Jump
Farther than I have before
Record and fourth place

Sleep
Praying that it will not rain
Relays the next day

Rain
Falling coldly on my skin
Freezing on the track

Bus
Long ride back without much sleep
One o’clock a. m.

Done
With high school track forever
I am satisfied
