Worth it!


All you need is
A crack in the window
And then
You can’t keep out
The sun
Or
The williwaw.
And
Either way
This whistle-stop tour
Is going to be worth it.
Totally.

  2. williwaw, thanks for sharing the term. I love words like that and this prose. Sounds like a good invitation. I'll roll the window down a little next time I drive until everyone in the car yells at me of course. ;=}
