May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome,
dangerous, leading to most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

The Path of Dreams

There were no trails where I walk.
I walk the desert, poor and broke
thinking of family in Mexico. 

Continuing north, I make a path
around the cactus and desert brush.

The sun, still low in the east,
temperature now rising faster
than the morning sun.

Low in water, I find an
old mesquite tree to rest
in its shade until late afternoon.

Then, I will continue following
the path of my dreams —
carefully watching for
green and white trucks.

Society is indeed a contract. Subordinate contracts for objects of mere occasional interest may be dissolved at pleasure – but the state ought not to be considered as nothing better than a partnership agreement in a trade of pepper and coffee, calico, or tobacco, or some other such low concern, to be taken up for a little temporary interest, and to be dissolved by the fancy of the parties. It is to be looked on with other reverence, because it is not a partnership in things subservient only to the gross animal existence of a temporary and perishable nature.
