vacationing in Colorado

I’m not going there
she said
can you please change the channel
there must be more to life
than current events
sapping all your energy

we had just sat down
at a local dispensary
having ordered two craft beers
and a bowl of purple sensimilla
the remote control to the TV
directly overhead
within arms reach

what about the Rockies game
I suggested
do you consider pro baseball
current events

that all depends upon who
they’re playing
she answered
not to mention how quickly this weed
will make me not care about anything

april two thousand nineteen

    Aww, I love this poem — especially the purple sensimilla. 🙂 New word for me! That sounds like the perfect date, romantic or friendly … or complete strangers. I used to watch a lot of baseball when young. The Braves were my fave.
