Places I Would Rather Be

places i would rather be •
inspired by william finn’s “i’d rather be sailing”

if i could be anywhere in the world
at this very quick moment
as the dawn cracks
i would be in the city
with people dressed for the wrong weather
or that little place where the grass is flattened
perhaps the island
or the quiet haven of a darkened room
accompanied by only the sounds of your breathing
or reeling in the depths of your embrace
that illusory moment of complete silence right before
we left for the last time
so many would expect of me
to choose
to have you back with me
to go back to that moment
i much prefer the city
or the island
or the grass
or the dawn
