i have not forgotten thee.
but i've been on a date.
a long one.
with my city.
nearly all my days have been spent in its streets.
among its people.
feeling its energy.
and i've been so full up-to-the-top with love for it---
i've had little time for anything else.
i haven't even taken my camera.
for how could i hold it while juggling--
fresh bakery breads.
and my yoga mat.
and my cutting board for the community soup prep.
and my noodles served off a rad chick's front porch.
and my fresh veggies from market?
it's been glorious to be here.
to be a part of it all.
but i'll be around.
soon enough, friends.
i'll be around.
in the meantime--
if you're fortunate enough to live here--
i'll see you on the street.
