Desert Wet



Hot water, hotter sand feet all fired
inner tube floating, shoes returning required
sleeping in a ski boat, dam closing
water level dropped, mud stuck dozing
campfire chemistry natural non-mushroom heads
what pair of two, sharing instead beds
surfboard, back of boat will it float
overt flirting, big toe mouth affection
your involved, sorry for the rejection
party barge midnight tequila drink
hole in the pontoon. Will it sink?
Damn things stuck, we're out of luck
running into a storm, against river rats swarm
taxi-cab out of money thankful ride
morning donuts breakfast, liquor store provide
cliff diving madness, boats tied together
paralyzed chance taking, mobility lost forever
wild times, wild people, danger in the air
stupid actions by smart people out of dare
truck driving deluge storm, bar drinks warm
