Sayonara, Edge of the Universe
Goodbye, sunset on the water. I will give up palm trees that bend in tailored rows towards the sea. The proximity of waves and seagulls. The sand between my toes in a moment's notice. A 20 minute commute to work. My bathtub. The neighbor who my cats adore. I will give them all up gladly for a small patch of land to set a hammock on, a front porch, a room for music, and the rest of the city surrounding me with art, color, noise, and Life. And most importantly, nearby loved ones. I am creeping slowly towards the center of things. I hope for the strength to embrace every fucking bit of it. Bring it.
