A twist on the list.
I've been traveling for work most of the past several months.
At present I'm in Sturgis, South Dakota, for the 76th annual motorcycle rally. Mt. Rushmore is about an hour away. Hail the size of baseballs fell last night about 30 miles north. Rain like rivers plunged from the sky in the late afternoon, leaving bikers pummeled, tired. The rest of the time, heat curls anything of color into concrete grey.
People watching is... to use an overused cliche'... epic. The local bars are gigantic affairs, with door signs warning 'no colors or weapons'. (Colors are the bandana or other items that show membership in a particular bike gang, and are not about banning people of color.) (Though by a vast majority, visitors are white.) Food is of two varieties: fried, and fried. Decided not to try the local sushi restaurant. People are invariably polite, though - Sturgis is neutral ground. Hallowed, even. Maybe that's why Harley colors are orange and black...
This month, the twist on the list is this: pick *at least* 3 cities / locations that you have visited, want to visit, or wish you never had. Can be fact or fiction. Why were/are you there? What did you do / are you doing there? Are they, or how are they connected?
All in iambic pentameter.
:) Just kidding. Form not required. Heck, in Sturgis, clothes are somewhat optional. Corey, google it...
As a reminder, please write a new poem, post it to your blog, and link that specific poem in Mr. Linky below. The prompt will remain open, so feel free to return later. As ever, travel to other participant's sites and leave a note that you popped in.
Thanks for stopping by.
