Promise Keeper


"I am still livin' with your ghost,
lonely and dreamin' of the west coast."

- Art Alexakis

I visited you before
I flew across your
distant cousin
nearly two years ago.

I never dipped
my hand or foot
in you because
the air was cooler

than expected;
It's the same here.
Before I left
I told you

I would return
someday, to live
or simply visit,
to stroll

the bohemian streets
that bustle beside you.
I am keeping that promise;
come fall, I will deliver.
