I answered a birthday note Liz Boykin sent
It pictured a sign whose sales message went:

“Sunset Motel. Air Cooled and Vented.
Heat. (No) Vacancy.” The West represented.

There, Liz imagined my next fifteen years.
Wishing me travel and many careers.

Above the thank-you note I sent, I drew
The picture sent by Liz, but from my view;

The sign from the card, that summed up the west,
Rusty and fading, but offering rest.

“Sunset Motel. Air Cooled and Vented.
Heat. (No) Vacancy.” World-worn and dented.
