Peruvian Leftovers

Moving Restless (08-31-05 Bus to Puerto Maltanado)

Trijillo to St. Augustine
Puerto Maltanado to San Juan
I know you'll never catch me
I dont know if you care that I'm gone

So much for well meant intentions
And truth turned into lies
The old city walls still stand
But everything crumbles with time

So I will keep on moving restless
Always hoping to forget
All trace of you in a new place
But it hasnt happened yet

The Airport (08-28-05 Newark Airport)

You bought me a beer in an airport bar
There must be some romance there
Just give me half a chance...
I'll dig it out

Some casual chat and we're on the same plane
There must be some destiny there
A second or two...
I'll find it

You touch my hand as you pass in the isle
There must be some sweetness there
A moment of pause...
I'll let you know

My boyfriend greets me with a long kiss
There must be some cheating there
I dont think...
I'll give it a look

Don't worry, there are still a few more between the teeth waiting to be dredged back out.- Jn

As far as I can see you're on a roll. I know I've said it a hundred times, but your brevity makes your words so much more impactful. I wish I had my mind and your style.

Not that there's anything wrong with your mind. I just wonder what my stuff would sound like if I were able to say it with less.

Sometimes I wish I could be longer winded. I feel like I have more to say but I run out of words that say what I mean. I dont know. -Jn
