sl,ut


my little piece of Utah
feels like 15 degrees

the stoop kid turned
sweater boy

and the summer’s
so summer,
and it lasts 27 months

you can’t get away
from the sunlight

my little piece of Utah
is like living
in the elements

i gotta get used
to going outside

taking a hike,
enjoying our
sandwiches

gotta tap into
my white side

my little piece of Utah
feels like my
brand new, used chevy cruze

i just payed
nine hundred to fix her

i’ve had nothing
but car problems out here,
but i’m blessed

i got queso
in the banco chancho

my little piece of UTah
is my own 800 square feet
i get to fart all over

where i could sit on the porch
and listen to Salt Lake City

and you can’t see the stars,
so i stare at that beautiful
pink glowing smog
and breathe it all in

my little piece of Utah.
