morro bay

morro bay is a boring town
and nothing happens there

an enormous, ominous rock from volanic spew
off the coast, staring weirdly

there are two paths the rock affords
left, right
towards the left path, tourists, a paved trail
with glimmering ocean and piles of small
pebbles, as if in tribute to the enormity
of the morro bay rock
to the right, local surfers and nihilists
paved with dirt, potholes and sand
the surfers, acting, vain, doing
the nihilists, drinking, watching, gossip

the morro bay rock was partially destroyed
to make the road to
the morro bay rock

an old tattoo shop owner nurse psychic,
watches judge judy and energetically
talks about family, food,
and a happy life lived
a vegan motorcyclist health food man,
kind and callous, offers pictures of
himself in younger days when he sees
your helmet
the wine bar hostess offers you vodka
on the right-hand shore of the morro
bay rock
an inland hottub warms you against the
chill of the nighttime
sea breeze
the worse ramen i've ever had
the shop owner anxious and
desperate to please, i ate it all,
regretted nothing
the coffee shop tender asked me to
research sacred geometry when
she saw the wisp on
my shirt
a man driving the smallest white car
gave me devil horns and
sped off slowly
kind and interesting people absolutely

morro bay is a boring town,
nothing happens there, except


9/10, it's beautiful here
