after a lovely dinner with a lovely friend
who had other commitments lined up,
I hopped off my bike, grabbed a beer,
and so I walked
through loud and lively streets,
drunk and happy crowds,
music oozing out of underground clubs,
my memories from the past week and
the essence of the conversations I’d had,
and the little circles on the sidewalk
drawn by the lantern coats of light.
it was just me, out there, and it was right.
sometimes you don’t have to go far
to be exactly where you need to be.
