Forgive my negativity.
It has been too long since I have written any sweet words.
I have not come across a place
as difficult as you.
Your parks and sidewalks
But tear up my boot's soles,
challenging me to take one more step.
So I climbed to the top of all the no-name bridges,
and sailed away to the jail at sea.
I cannot seem to grasp the congestion of square miles
or the vastness of one urban block.
He has fallen into your rhythms so well;
and I, bow my head in peace,
and command my troops
surrender to your composition.
