New York Moments

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.”

~Rumi

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.

Sleeping in

and the best breakfast

sandwich in your favorite Brooklyn

neighborhood.

Magic.

A guitar almost left with you

To write a new song.

And you do anyway.

Tra la la, la la la.

Delicious.

Just another couple days in New York.

How I love you.

All of you.

Always.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
