In the morning, we order bagels and coffee. / Leaving this city means finding another / with places that will bring breakfast / to the apartment on a Saturday morning / where the only thing I can do is watch / Spring happen outside my open window. // Of all the places I’ve ever lived, this is the one / I understand the least. But I don’t really need to / to be here, so maybe that’s why I stay. / In the same way I exit parties, I imagine one day, just waking up / and then going without a word, as Spring happens, / outside.
