The Trade

Poetry Challenge Day 333 (Fri Sep 2)

Breakfast in Denio Junction Utah.
Three eggs over easy.
87 Octane, $6.99 a gallon.
You now know you’re nowhere.
The BLM Fire boys like my truck.
They tell me they will trade me
straight across,
my truck for their
heavy duty dually fire truck…
I have to decline.
I told them my girlfriend
probably wouldn’t ride in their rig.
They agreed.
