If I'm going to wake up at midnight
I may as well be out and about to see the sun rise
. I can't understand what motivated me but it was strong, so strong that once I was trudging through Canada's poorest neighbourhood
en route to a hidden park to install myself, I wasn't surprised to be informed by a friendly passing stranger (junkie
? your call...) that it was the first day of Spring
. Some part of me must have known.
watching helicopters take off
old people practicing tai chi
animals in pairs
A more fitting inception for a day ending in a wake I cannot conceive of.
