On love letters and longing.

Loneliness is particularly hard
When you are in a new and beautiful place.

Remember that you are,

In a new and a beautiful place.

I advise

and poetry.
Take two and write me in the morning.

If that doesn’t work,
Buy yourself a new hat.

They are beginning human trials
