Poem: Whirlwind Road Trip

Poem created in response to Robert Lee Brewer’s Wednesday Poetry Prompt #137, 22 June 2011.


Whirlwind Road Trip

Picked up The Beast
with a newly installed stereo
and we were on our way to

Greensboro
where we discovered
a rockin’ alternative band
in a hole-in-the-wall bar
followed by another bar
and a jammin’ band
with some bangin’ island drums.
We closed that place down
and headed west to

Knoxville
like us, the Gators were visiting
your old stomping ground
where we partied with the winners
and losers
and crashed in The Beast
in some motel parking lot
before heading south to

Atlanta
our final destination
for a game between teams
we didn’t care about.
The sideshow of fan interaction
was more exciting than the game,
and Monday morning, while everyone
else was at work, we headed back home.

      I recall it too well. The real job in this poem was to not say too much.
