The Happy Camper


RDP Friday: CAMP

I was here to visit

to take in the sights of broken buildings and sunbathing cats and cross baristas with sharpies in hand and better places to see and more interesting people to know then people like me, I was here  to taste new foods, to dance to new music trapped in three notes dreamed of in a computer program


I was here to visit

to try new words, wear some new skins, to get lost on unmarked streets

to be yelled at by people I know, to scream at people  I don’t know


I was here to visit

and I doubt I will be back again.

There are so many places to visit

and only so many breaths I will be allowed.
