  • We arrived within hours of each other.
    To a one bedroom flat on La Ramblas.
    We couldn't even take our clothes off.
    There were too many inspirations.
    Science articles and books on death,
    led us to new ideas on life.
    We drank coffee and murdered
    a giant celery plant.
    We wrote of how to continue living,
    we realized we were in love.
    And within days, we knew...
    we were better than any job description,
    more free than any label,
    and aware of ourselves again
    in this shared place.
