Amarillo Bound
Amarillo Bound

Out in the west of Oklahoma,
the towns are sparse on the ground.
This is the the state’s neglected backyard
where the soil is dry and the buildings tired,
many deserted and leaning to the weather,
the stores designed in the 1950s,
yesterday alive in the atmosphere,
in such contrast to neighbouring Texas.
