New Book! Vacancy / No Vacancy by John Sierpinski

The room we check into
is dark and dirty. They cut corners,
even replaced the heat lamp
in the bathroom

with a yellow light bulb.
Lynn says, Are you going to sit
on that filthy, old La-Z-Boy?
At this point, I don’t give a damn.

I’m exhausted,
drove another six hundred miles,
feeling like that OTR truck driver
falling asleep at the wheel.
