When they don’t know you are a treeplanter

When you stay at a hotel and they do not know you’re a treeplanter, they will give you white towels and duvets. You do not have to pick the least dirty of you to book the room. There is no bottle opener on the sink. They will let you have a ground floor room with doors that open to the outside. They will not remind you, curtly, to remove your workboots, or check your rooms for dogs. You may sleep only 1 or 2 to a bed & watch t.v. A full program- not grainy infomercials and cartoons, while high at 4 a.m, a gold tooth carnie doing scratch cards in the cigarette burned duvet beside you. I think I prefer finding my friends in the stairwell, paying off management to not call the police, smuggling the dogs in, doors all open and moving room to room, looking for just one room that still has a dry towel and toilet paper (and maybe a forgotten beer.)
