paradise lost ?
fell yesterday ankle roll à la Le Bron James
on rubble masquerading as sidewalk now
mosquitos feeding one sucker on my left
cheek looks zitty+gross every toe in bandaids
sweat friction swelling of extremities
blisters full +bloodscum this is a wondrous place
of grit +pastel redemption yet you tap your heels
3x and say: can i come home now Mr. Vacation Man?
(..and can i have my 12,000 bucks back too fer chrissakes??..)
Curacao 2023 ..they came..they conquered..
