Trailing Edge

You talk to anyone and they'll tell you how data visualization was all the rage
And they'll have trouble pronouncing it.

And then oil fields, and round plots,
Interstates vs. bigger states vs.
It's daytime and we're leaving.

I promised you we wouldn't have to rush anymore once we got there.
It'll be slower.
It'll be drier.

It'll be dusk and expanses and the end of an era.
It'll be woodsmoke and dressed up tomato juice and no, those aren't boars.

It'll be something else.
