CHEAP MOTEL OUTSIDE OF HOLBROOK, ARIZONA

BY CINTHIA RITCHIE

Mildew sucks the ceiling,
we eat crackers in the bathtub,
wine bottle chilling
the toilet, we fuck
all week, sweat bruising
the sheets, we smear
apricot juice over our palms,
eat cold burritos,
throw Cheetos out the window
for the lizards,
we are earth children,
too late for the sixties,
we smoke homegrown,
forget to wash our armpits,
dance with skinny Indian children,
outside the gas station,
one steals my wallet and we laugh,
smoke another joint,

Read the rest here.
