Honey Crust

Driving along I-80 in a part of Iowa I’ve never been
Sitting in the passenger seat of a car that I don’t own that’s being driven by a man that I don’t know
Watching the hills roll by framed by overpasses without off ramps
My pack in the back and my water jug at my feet
I have never felt so removed from everything else
And I’ve never felt so close to home.

The road has been nothing but kind to me
Carrying me along, getting me to couches of friends and the bedrooms of partners
To punk shows and folk fests
To skateparks and state parks
To gutters and rooftops
And to anywhere else my heart aches to be.

I’m listening to the ramblings of an old man who reminds me of an uncle that I haven’t spoken to in years
I’m struck by the guilt of spending more time with strangers than I do with my family
I’m going to visit my brother on his birthday
I think that would be nice
I hope he enjoys the company. I know that I will.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
