“Phoenix Arizona- 1979

The Greyhound bus ride 
was hot and dry,
never a dull moment
on the three day journey.

Three people left behind
in St. Louis
never found out why.

Pot smokers and beer drinkers
thrown off in Oklahoma City.

America's landscape
was brilliantly breathtaking

Open fields, open plains
nostalgic to the inhabitants
new to this wide eyed wonder

So hot you could fry an egg
on the sidewalk
and I tried. . . no bacon though.

Wild gun toting mentality
as I saw the heat rise off of the desert.

Leaving memories in my mind
that lasted longer
than the  three day bus ride home. . . .
