Plan the packing
Clean the camper
Test the tailights
Change of clothes
Popsicles and Pop-Tarts
Bikes on the back
Gas in the tank

A house filled with windows
with a deck out back
where a swallow of Starbucks
spins round in my favorite cup
Feet point west
as the sun falls through
a pink and blue sky.

(Note: If allowed, the words in the first stanza would be struck through with a pen down to "Gas in the tank".)
