The Finale

The Finale

Let’s be clear—I’m here
Naked and molding
Into the ground 
My amygdala was shot
Out of the cannon 
Into the sky
For the last time
Maybe I’ll stay
Maybe I’ll fly away
Come see this retiree
Confident and quite sure
He has nowhere to be

Song of Traveling


Song of Traveling

An internal crying out
International borders
Fading out
Needing to fly away
Not knowing where to go
For sure, he does know
He made a wish today

A click of the mouse,
Found the key,
Scrolling through pages
Passionately
Through many dreams
He’d never really seen
Oh, the possibilities

Sometimes the best
Valentine t
o find
Is a suitcase fully loaded
What you can’t wait to see,
Foot tapping imperatively,
Heart paired to the beat
Of a song of traveling

Sitting up—
The plane is landing—
Passengers begin the
Anxiety of standing,
Waiting,
Ready to be
Moving along

We’re really here.
Finally here.
In the clear.
We’ve reached
Our destination.

Sometimes the best
Valentine t
o find
Is a suitcase fully loaded
When you can’t wait to feel free,
Foot tapping imperatively,
Heart paired to the beat
Of a song of traveling

Leave the pieces of everyday
Behind, unwind, now
Pick a place and fly away
You’re worth the pennies
You have saved
We all deserve to enjoy
A holiday

Sometimes the best
Valentine t
o find
Is a suitcase fully loaded
Where you can’t wait to be,
Foot tapping imperatively,
Heart paired to the beat
Of a song of traveling

New York and Jamaica Bound

Negril, Jamaica 2010

I just finished work and am almost 100% packed to head to New York! I will be staying with Liz in Park Slope and visiting with friends until the 25th. I am super excited to get to see everyone and to be back in my old neighborhood for the week of Thanksgiving. My friends Jodi and Oniel have a big party/feast every year and there will be plenty of faces at the table I am thankful to have in my life.

On the 25th, I’ll be heading to Jamaica with Jodi and Oniel and meeting my friend Jessica at the airport in Montego Bay. Oniel is from Negril and I went with them in 2010 and had an amazing time. My plan is to do a whole lot of relaxing, soak up the sun, and to find a rum punch shortly after my arrival.

There is nothing like a good old vacation to make you smile and I am so happy mine is here. Later!
