Forgive my negativity.
It has been too long since I have written any sweet words.

"On Cities"
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.

Well now it looks silly that I removed my comment, but I just looked like a jerk with you sneakily switching your posts on me...

maybe the woods are a landscape more aligned with your disposition...or perhaps an urban park will be enough for the time being...
