this sojourn makes my lips beam
look at us
the adventurous traveling novices
with cloudless skies and decent temperatures
the view is marvelous, darling
thank you for taking this trip with me

Exit Strategy

i hope i leave this world

and not in the sense
that i’ve treated it well
(although i did)
with my presence

and not that i vainly want
to be good looking when i do

i mean

i don’t want to be jaded
not ruined by it
and not consumed wholly by the living of it

you know
exit classy, sassy and a little bad-assy
leave with a smile on my face
because i enjoyed the ride tremendously
