Vacation

109 degrees! declares the neon sign
one of many warnings we do not heed
we fry on the
road well worn
no air conditioner but windows open to the scorching breeze
tears shed and years spent
a cart load of dents
we heave on towards dawn
to make time we don't eat
but once a day
who sold us on travel you ask
a commercial urging us to explore the US of A
