"There was nowhere to go but everywhere."


Seattle
the fantasies of
brisk wind / cold rain
warm liquids on the tongue
igniting the mouth
fireworks
scratching worthless rhymes
in a notebook
poetry on a napkin
just like all the others
waiting unsteadily
still overwhelmed with hope that
THIS WILL BE THE YEAR
but the car will choke
the roof will cry
and the market will crash

start again

but know
you will never leave this city
it doesn't get better
the rain clouds will grey
tomorrow
and they will weep
tomorrow
just like today
