no vacancy

a desolate stretch of asphalt

the highways in her eyes

gas station dreamcatchers

turquoise bolo ties

plastic cactus keychains

a dented road sign

last rest stop 90 miles

the desert sky choosing sides

this girl’s a roadside motel

with a blinking neon sign

n o    v a c a n c y

despite the obsolete

king james and ice machines

and the stains on the sheets

he took an indefinite residency

reservation book  john hancock

called for room service

and changed all the locks

n o    t r e s s p a s s i n g
