Holy crap, I’m waiting to board a plane to London for two weeks! I still can’t believe I’m going back after two whole years of being back in the States. This is going to be quite an adventure!
I am sitting on the heart of this city
Letting it teach me how to say goodbye
Tucking myself into the folds of its hills,
And it feels like crawling into bed with someone who is grumpy in the morning but still loves the shape of your thighs.
When I try to stuff my pockets with keepsakes,
It is only because I am trying to remember the exact street corners where I met every version
Of the self I am trying to become.
I have a feeling this describes my upcoming trip to London and who I was two years ago in that city.
