Day 22, 30-day #candleflame challenge.
“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./
Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”
Heather, you like Bourbon? he said.
I say, I’m more of a rum drinker.
He says, I believe you’ll like this.
Really, why, I said.
Well, it tastes of vanilla,
And it’s called redemption.
Two things I believe are your favorite.
Not sure how he knew,
And he is not wrong.
Both are always welcome.
The evening proceed with delicious
Stinky goat cheese and Corn Nutz
From his pack laid out on the bar.
Esoteric waxing about David Lynch.
And the merits of writing plays on the insides
Of a brown paper bag.
Seeing sweet folks
for dinner and drinks
That you love.
Who are in love.
The beginnings of me chapters
Are always beautiful.
and the best breakfast
sandwich in your favorite Brooklyn
A guitar almost left with you
To write a new song.
And you do anyway.
Tra la la, la la la.
Just another couple days in New York.
How I love you.
All of you.
Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
