Sitting Poolside at The Grafton on Sunset

Today is mine, warm, sunny
Los Angeles!  It is meant to be
and I am drowsy with it.  Late
afternoon punctuated with
absolute boring might be
absolutely boring.  However,
today, I am barely even moved.
Rather, I walk Santa Monica
Boulevard to the nearest juice
joint.  Back at the hotel (The
Grafton on Sunset, that is), I
take a nap.  I grab a bite, room
service, so I’m already here,
already sated, already lying
under this big, white umbrella.
It’s so pleasant being an adult,
driving down the Pacific Coast
Highway, slowly (even through
Malibu!), just because you have
the time to be pleasant and do it.
