Vegas

In the casino at our hotel

a Japanese grandmother tucks singles

into the dancer’s waistband

 

An old woman wearing a Winnie the Pooh sweatshirt

invites my 16 year old son

to a strip club

 

the Bellagio has a Chinese giant

rows and rows of tulips

fountain geysers that bend to the wind

 

you can buy whiskey

at CVS and so we do

because we can

 

the fake Eiffel Tower lights up

every well dressed man wants

high-heeled girls to dance at his club

 

our hotel shuttle is filled

with Southerners and tourists

all of us weary

 

we drive out of Vegas

to the Red Rock Wilderness

where sunlight makes everything

glow
