Easy On/Easy Off

“Local landmark, bypassed into irrelevance decades ago.  Posted, per gallon fuel prices, were a cruel joke.”


Country crossroad

Pre-interstate relic

Mom and pop eatery

No trespassing signage

Replaced lunch specials

Traffic passed–with

Nary a second glance

Rust patina covered

Diesel pumps

Twenty-first century

Truckers, tourists

Locals–congregated

At Waffle Houses

Cracker Barrels

Golden arches

Further down

The road

At exit 44
