Out of Dodge

Out of Dodge

Leonard stood on the side of the road.

Riding thumb in the July heat.

Kicking dust on Route 99,

down to his last 3 cigarettes.

Hestitated, then lit it squinting at the sun.

“Should’ve stayed maybe” he thought before shaking his head.

A pickup truck full of scrap metal slowed

and he carefully jumped in.
