Hotel California and Everywhere Else

Hotel California and Everywhere Else

At roadside inns, we check in,

then check out.

We spend tired nights

in these public stockades.

The noise trails off around dawn.

Should we remember to leave 

a trail of pills

to find our way out 

once day breaks?

  1. Brevity is next to godliness in my book. This little snapper is the best poem I read at that length in ages. Fine work, young lady.
