Remembering the city’s lights.

City Lights bookstore, San Francisco, poetry room

[san francisco, usa. City Lights Bookstore . thanks hc]

The oddity is that

going other places takes you out of the loop;

all new is vivid and different steps invoke fresh minds.

but returning returns you. And the other-

having always been the other and never given quite enough time to steep,

fulfils its ephemeral threat.

.

I hope that even as i am returned, i do not return.
