Epic Road Trip #9

Thistle seeds
fly through the air
without any need to be touched.
The bee swarm veers near
as natural as the breeze,
as smooth as the whirring of the river.
But one look at this Motel in Wheeling
with its slab sides and steel blue doors,
where people have to smoke and drink to survive,
and I realize how humans just resist it all.
