Hacienda 11

The room key enters the lock on the door A bright green light flashes The hinges unlock The door opens and a cool breeze knocks into me In the dimly lit bathroom A pink bikini hangs Dripping icy water into a makeup bag Piles of sand lay over the cold tiles Leaving a trail to the other half of the room Three opened suitcases, clothes piling out of them Shirts, dresses, bathing suits sprawled out across the floor Two queen sized beds stand next to each other Covered with large colorful blankets and multiple fluffy pillows In the corner a tiny couch One small blanket and pillow What was I thinking when I agreed to sleep on this couch? I never end up sleeping. Next year I’ll be sure not to make the same mistake
