Let’s walk everywhere.
It’s been too long since I’ve trusted
my legs, and my heart is so tired
of carrying my weight.
I know there are trains
and buses and cars but I am tired
of waiting to depart from these
machines for the journey to begin.
On the days I wake with open eyes,
the suitcases beneath my eyelids
unpacked, I do not wish to stay inside.
I do not wish to do the things
we could have done any other day.
