Months of snakes and ladders led to this perfect rest. Too much television and piping hot tea, autumn’s first cold weather top the window sill. Trips to the grocer to purchase foods she’d never eat.
Walks across the Meadows and quiet reading at coffee shops she frequents; life inside her shoes. Big back cabs are painted with Marc Jacobs flowers, they sit stagnant outside of hotels made of weathered brick.
The sun peaks out only once, really, behind some picture tree. Her flatmates wonder what her friends are doing, flying cross the world to hide underneath a blanket, such sleepish slugs.
To them some shrugs and this: those afternoons are the best we’ll ever have.
