  • the four corners of the earth meet here
    at this very corner
    this very coffeeshop

    bustling, bustling
    slyly, very close
    just around the corner
    and out of reach
    until summoned

    a pleasant bop in your step
    a tiptoe in the night
    every walk of earth comes here
    and it's where my step has come to a halt
    to where my heart spins in a 360
    breathless at the prospect
    just the sight of you
    sets my soul on fire
    and now I am ablaze
    thirsty for more

    more, more + endlessly so
    ever more and ever and
    here I come
    for your call
    among the dregs + kings
    gypsies in our own right

    you are so close

    but not enough to see
    the daylight will illuminate
    I trust
    not trust,
    but wonderment
    and more, evermore

    please return

    answer my yearning
    take me on the journey
    I am ready to go
    my shoes are primed for adventure
    my feet itch to dance
    with you, swaying
    so full of joy, I could fall over
    and I almost did
    just now
    but now
    when will I see you again?
    smiling as you spy me
    heart in my throat
    ears flushed pink
    with young love
    to love and to love and to love
    love you evermore
    among the streets deserving of cobblestones
    tread soft by souls of shoes
    wayward + otherwise
    my friends live here
    and I hover in a close orbit
    fluttering like a butterfly
    wishing to land..
