rode the bus
to the end of the line
it was loud there
there was a pizza hut
and a papa johns
and a starbucks
and a lot of ugly clothing
the sky
was grey
and angry
i ate japanese chain-store noodles
i wiped the sweat
from my face

riding the escalator
reminded me
of that day i thought about buying that bag
i was coming back
to you
now i’m gone
but i’m here
somewhere else

there are mosquitoes in our room
and the sound of the air conditioner
my feet are on the bed
four walls
