these are the things I leave behind:
love like a headstrong art,
a barrage of skyscrapers lined up
like battleships,
a strange, surreal cityscape
with furtive alcoves and concave places
in which I hid my secrets.

perhaps one day I will
walk these streets without
stringing regret along at my heels—
I will greet the weeds
that struggle through the concrete
like lovers.
I walked all around the city
all the places you and I went
this is not bittersweet
it is thoroughly tainted

NaPoWriMo day #16.

:giggle: I have this book: In the Defense of Weeds that I was just considering starting as my next book last night. How funny. I was thinking it'd inspire something (probably somewhat similar to me)
