Free Range #19: Like a Bridge Over Troubled Womp




Artwork Notes:

Odometer: 887.8 miles

Well, not really. I’m sure the womp down there is perfectly content to be left alone and only viewed from above. The only troubled ones would be the prospective wompees passing by hankering for some all-time scenic & historical womp. Access down there isn’t easy. This one is for all my boardless wave sliding friends. May your goat trails always be passable.


Separated at birth
An island
Adrift
From the motherland
She always dreamed of the day
The cartographers
Would come
And make things right
The Alta
And the Baja
So close
But a world away
Until the bridge
Spanned the final distance
At last
Reunited
The map has been redrawn
