Coastal Wanderers

in the blaze of the summer heat, drips
of sweat rippled down our smooth skin backs.

we set out for adventure along the Pacific coast,
the four of us squeezed in a compact sedan.

sisters laughing, shouting, nowhere else to be.
engaging winding hair-pin turns, honking,

speeding, and slamming on the brakes
as the afternoon sun scorched the town.

we reveled in the sights, mountainsides, sea
cliffs, the endless shore; such views we’d never

seen before or soon forget. we eventually reached
the city of angels, the city lights; the most memorable

trip of our lives sailed through those late nights. we
often walked in a daze, both night and day.

a trip we still laugh about, the screams belting out
winding down the coast, and how close we were

to the end of it all…
