What I love is honesty
And travel ready Appalachian girls
What I love are Toyota Camry running lights
And long nights on docks, or with Master Chief.
I love laughing about vacations gone awry
Crazy taxi drivers, coastal muck, trying not to die.
I love 1st and 1st, with all its boundless creativity
Along with hummingbirds, grey roof tents, and reverie.
What I love are ping pong games and dead end streets
Where a bunch of troublemakers made their home.
I love storms and rain and soccer games
Rapala lures, rhododendron blooms
Hikes and frozen pizza, billiards, beer, basic lights
And things and stuff and places at times
But people first of all.
