redefining what this place means to me.
went to see Hamilton Leithauser
singing about me dreaming about her
at Headliners Music Hall.
as I sway to the temporal temptations,
I tell myself I could live here.
I preach to myself, after the snow,
that the city's central location
could be a good hub for life and work.
after the show,
scarfing White Castle burgers,
and tossing some to some people
I've met who don't know my past,
I make a memory of a smile.
it would be insanely ironic
if I moved here,
and started a life,
maybe running into her in the middle,
in Clifton or Highlands.
daydreams happen at night, too,
and tomorrow I will look at the prices
of apartments just for the hell of it.
I already have a job here,
and nothing to lose.
