life lessons from the southwest
colorado says you'll never see the
mountains at sunset the same way twice.
the days melt like snowflakes, the air so thin
it tears if you're not careful. vegas says to lean into the
headache. the skyline hurts like a broken radio.
a city so green and greedy even the graveyards
smell like a casino. california says
there's a graveyard for everything in the desert:
airplanes, wind farms, bushes drowned in
sunlight. if you're not careful,
you drive through one end and
leave your body behind.
