Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A freeverse poem about aimlessly wandering into the city.
Coworkers instruct me to have fun the weekend I leave for the bigger town

I run to catch the next train so I won’t be late

While an old man sits on the bench and patiently waits for the next one

At the mall, foot traffic circles around the attractions

There’s a little girl falling in love with a dog at the pet store

Hungry I walk into a restaurant and down a plate of dumplings

Next to me, a couple quietly enjoy a date of ramen and water

I go to the next store searching for an object that I didn’t know I wanted

A group of students released from school passes me to go get new trading cards

In the next store, I treat myself to what I’ve been needing

Back at the station, it begins to pour I run into the gas station drenched in need of an umbrella

I see a garden soaking up the water

I go back to my room and toss my stuff into the closet

I hear my neighbors play loud music and laugh in the next room

I tune into my virtual screen and sleep for the night

I'll try again tomorrow and have a great day
