I spoiled myself and bought a pair of Asolos.  I never buy the nicest of anything, I’m cheap as hell.  But these will take me through the Adirondacks this weekend, through Guatemala in the fall, through Thailand in the spring, and probably through much of my life!  So much to be excited/nervous about!

Topophilia

You once said that we are either place-oriented or people-oriented.

In essence, you would want to sleep in

in Antigua with your arms around me.

I laughed and told you to drag your tongue across another’s map,

and I assume that’s what you’re doing now— 

beating drums for someone else’s ears,

singing songs of hatred about the cities that took away your women.

I want to watch Antigua wake up.

I want to watch the sunrise with silent Antigua.

I want Antigua to be faithful to me.

When I am in Antigua, I don’t want anyone else to be inside Antigua.

We are both damned.

Of course, no one dances to poems about you.

Antigua has only a mouth.

Topophilia

Someone once told me that people were either place-oriented or people-oriented.

In essence, he wouldn’t enjoy Antigua without his friends.

He would want to sleep in

in Antigua with his arms around me.

I want to watch Antigua wake up.

I want to watch the sunrise with silent Antigua.

I want Antigua to be faithful to me.

When I am in Antigua, I don’t want anyone else to be inside Antigua.

If all goes as planned, I will be packing through Guatemala in November!
