9 Jul 2018 poem

Magnified View

Someone in Chicago, Illinois
thinks the Southwest is beautiful.

A lot of people agree with him
whether they know him or not.

He thought this six months ago
and still thinks it today.

A lot of people fail to remain that constant
except when their belly is pressed to the bar.

He used a telescope to spy the Southwest
and has never actually visited.

A lot of people actually visit the Southwest
but fail to see the unfamiliar beauty.
