The Best Thing About Tennessee

“The best thing about Tennessee is that you can leave it.” I’ve always said. Yet here I am.

Knoxville is a knot of highways. I can hit every direction and escape. Yet here I am.

The same breastaurant every night. I’m just as lonely here. Yet here I am.

I don’t want to be in this place. I want something better. Yet here I am.

I don’t want this life. But it’s all I know. And I stay.
