Not Terribly Far from Reno

i wonder what it was like for moses
in his motel room after 40 years
of wandering through the desert
did he get food delivered figs
lox bagels a little palm wine
a formosa for moses ice
maker under the moonlit
heavens with a shower
and shave just like clint
eastwood after having
to watch his back
with eyes over
his head taking
on the whole posse
or just totally dehydrated
and going for the faucet in
the corner and passing out

hold my calls....
