About Just Beyond the Headlights

My name is Kevin Clark. I am a full-time crusty old trucker and sometimes writer from Cedar Falls, IA.

The Night Seems

The night seems

a small black hand,

knuckled with the soft shapes

of trees.


In the quiet –

listen –

the sweeping trail

of a tender hand,

and the wheeling tumble

of bats

spilling into our sky

like a child’s jacks

onto a starry table.
