weed pocketed next to a bottle of wine

we laugh as we pull out and beyond,

snowy mountain beauty hard to capture

in a car and in his camera but i try

pack the pack of winstons

light one and inhale

finish lolita and drift to sleep,
 23
wake up hungry.

we stop for a sign that promises food,
 25
i order pastrami and it is delicious.
 26
 
 
the old people surround us, this is
 27
their place, we are invaders
 28
 
 
and i am through with daylight,
 29
wake up home to friends and beer and hookah
 30
 
 
wake up home today to drab landscape
 31
guilt and disappointment
 32
lack of beauty and plenty of snow.
 33
