Let's not travel to tick things off lists
or collect half hearted semi treasures
to be placed in dusty drawers in empty rooms.
Rather, we'll travel to find grounds and rooftops
and tiny hidden parks,
where we'll sit and dismiss the passing time,
spun in the city's web 'til we've surrendered,
content to be spent and consumed.
I need to feel a place while I'm in it.
