Storm Warning

The soundtrack
from a Nineties
adventure film
fills the frigid
January air
at the Nebraska
truck stop
as I scribble her
a quick note.
I imagine
the envelope
won’t arrive
in California
before seasonal
weather blankets
Donner Pass.
I will meander
along the route,
search for a vacancy
as a snowstorm
approaches
from the Rockies.
