Yes

Dancing amongst the laundry as it dries,

A rooftop at sunset. A Spanish city

There are snare rolls and my feet move as quickly as they come

Body alive with cold, the breeze hits me

terracotta tiles, the sky above turning purple

Clear mind, sharp inhale, приволье.

  

5th jan

5 am thoughts

of a nightclub in Russia,

a Portuguese road

chants and vespers

a prayer for sleep
