after a long vacation
of rattlesnakes and scorpions
carefree abandon
the deepest lake
I awoke
and declared
to the light
bursting forth
over the horizon
sitting up in bed
“look how beautiful
the sunrise is over the cliffs!”
As I awakened my sister
with my awe.
Only to find out
that we were still in Vegas
and I was merely
seeing the lights of the city
over the jagged curtains.
