yesterday evening was spent with my lovely friend sarah
we perched ourselves atop her balcony twenty two floors in the sky
and saw the whole city.
i looked left and saw the metropolis of kaohsiung, the 85 building and bright lights dancing,
yonder was the dark expanse of the ocean and the dull lights of sleeping boats,
as i moved right we saw fireworks,
we're all always celebrating here.
cityscape gave way to mountains and temples and
in front of it all was the love river
around which trains kept passing in the night
and making me feel lucky like a little kid.
we listened to old beats and tried out new ones
and drank a tall asian beer
and laughed harder than i've laughed in a long long time.
the most unexpected best.
