Neon at Dusk, Stagecoach Motel, Route 66, Seligman, Arizona, United States of America

Stagecoach Motel

As night drops down
Headlights on the road
Looking for a bed
A shower

Stale cigarettes
And mildew
Saggy mattress
Flickering lights

Just one night
On the road

Then another
And another

Days on the road
Nights in motels

But the road
Is worth it

Perhaps, but still
I prefer to camp

Neon at Dusk
Stagecoach Motel
Route 66
Arizona, United States of America
