It’s the ultimate blank canvas of life.
Revisiting middle school goals and daydreams.
Making plans and imagining escapes.
Did a romance novelist invent love?
She’s not stressed.
And galaxies and spring flowers and other stuff of daydreams.
Far above my fears.
Fresh starts and false ones.
Philosophy by way of Sophocles and Kanye West.
We could go anywhere together.
