Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


people who are going to be
in a few years
bottoms of trees
bear a responsibility to something
besides people
                      if it was only
you and me
sharing the consequences
it would be different
it would be just
generations of men
this business of war
these war kinds of things
are erasing those natural
obedient generations
who ignored pride
                      stood on no hind legs
                      begged no water
                      stole no bread
did their own things

and the generations of rice
of coal
of grasshoppers

by their invisibility
denounce us
