Jenny Armetta – Recreation

From the asphalt concrete jungle they come,

For the weekend.

Crawling north on the Interstate through
the white-hot glare of a desert’s summer sun.

Showers and toilets–they demand the
city’s comforts–can’t quite break away
from what it is they so desperately want
to escape.

For the weekend.

Chips and sodas, beer and boom boxes,
a suntan oil-drenched dip in the creek.

A leisure-time getaway to the
wilds of the campground.
