Time has been kind to me,
anticipating for something great.
Tonight I will eat
many delicious things
in good company.
Sorry it went cold, I’m a silly girl with a camera
that likes the simple things
in the ordinary
But the last train will leave soon
before the night can finish.
but between here and there is better than either here or there.
of how you took care of me
the entire night in the cold, coughing
happily forced medicine, stubborn me
and opening your wallet too many times
while i talked equally too much
in my broken japanese.
i couldn’t look at you straight in the eye
saw a lot of feet
but shared admiration
made me forget
and through my camera I can look
everything in front of me.
