XIII.

Today I walk through the city I love, this city that welcomed me. Myths and ghosts and scraps of stories long forgotten lurk on every corner, in every starred panel of sidewalk. I wake up and dream of the ones I love. I walk through space and space makes room for me. I ask for time and time arrives. I offer a piece of my-self and receive a piece of other-self in answer. The universe calls me eirs and curls up next to me like e is my child, pet, parent, friend, teacher, mentor, adversary, lover, god… all in one.
