Michigan hallucination

landing in Detroit
you’ll find most people
heading directly to the chaplain
as if their deity will keep them safe
throughout their business trip or …
well, there is no trip for pleasure there.

in preparation for the trip, I brought all the necessities:
muscle relaxers
pain pills
anti-anxiety meds
but apparently,
the one thing I forgot was a drink to sip on.

one rest stop after another
#eightmile
and one more rest stop
before I really need to stop
(the nods are kicking in)

the driver (a colleague)
finds me useless
annoying
dramatic
and
I
can’t blame her;
these pills will cause severe dehydration
along with other unappealing side-effects!

but I won’t lie … I was feeling good.

Flint was the destination
but so was Bad Axe
but a detour devoured
the
trip.

Fucking Frankenmuth:
if you’ve never been to this place (I hesitate to call it anything else except a home for carnies)
I highly recommend you never go,
unless you love to watch people
that reminded me of overweight dried prunes.

I still am not sure I hallucinated
the entire visit.

A
real
life
Charlie
and
the
Chocolate
Factory

and fried chicken.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
