Road Trip

Cambridge, Minnesota, 1976

Another motel.

No pretensions here, not even a cheap print screwed to the wall.

But the sheets are clean.

A little smoke, a little drink.

Carol Burnett on the TV.

Wishing you were somewhere else.

Another Saturday night in downtown nowhere.

But you still have your youth, a least for one more day.

Might as well burn a little of it here.

It's as good a place as anywhere.

By Professor Batty
