The Texas Chili Parlor in Austin, Texas is not a place that a vagabond traveler will stumble upon. Unless that traveler veers off the I-35 to avoid evening rush hour with the sole purpose of chillin' with a chilled pint. The bar is lined with locals matching wits with contestants on Jeopardy and the beer is indeed chilled. A sign in the corner deserves a second look and that second look gives rise to a search for a pen and a piece of paper.

Indoors, the wounded are bare and bloodied,
With cold hands...she washes away the blood
Beyond the perimeter of her skill, she binds them
Witnessing the full force of hatred and violence!

There's a yellow rose in Texas,
that I am going to see,
No other soldier* knows her,
no soldier only me
She cried so when I left her
it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her,
we nevermore will part.

The remnants of the Mother Road
head out of Chicago toward Lake Michigan
A patchwork quilt now held together
by nostalgia and by-pass detours
in the shadow of the Interstate highway
Go west young man, indeed
