Pick up and leave

Where should we go today?

We’ve paid the bills and have a surplus.
We could drive till our asses hurt.
Leave endless Nebraska.
Drive across the Rockies.
Through Independence Pass.
I’ll catch us dinner.
We can roast potatoes.
Sleep off the highway.
Maybe find a wild hot spring.
In the morning we’ll continue westward.
Stopping for lunch in the sunlight.
Nap in the heavy shade of a tree.
Get up and do it all again.
Laughing.
Worry-free eyes.
Reach the coast.
Watch the sun set the sky on fire.
I’ll catch us dinner.
Stay as long as we want.
