Durango is keeping
a secret from its residents
they all know it
so they look at you
with these eyes
but Durango never gives.
she protects her secrets with icy weather,
distracts you with beer clinks into the night
as she rails it up north on monumental tracks.
eventually, everyone leaves
then you learn no one is really from here
maybe the neighbor you look for after a day;
talk of like they’re an emblem is only of nearby
always reminding how the months just go by
we’re all in search
to eventually accept
we’re not gonna find
I spent the last winter season in Durango, Colorado and wow, I just could not ignore the fact that it is like the town was hiding something from everyone who is there. Everyone who is there is not from there.
