rougher

I’ll admit it:

there are some days
when I feel
claustrophobic
looking up at our
clear blue skies

days when I see
the layer of smog
coating the buildings
downtown and cringe

days when I
desperately wish
that everything
weren’t so damn
far apart.

And then
it’s love again:

with the sight of the hills
from the 134

with the arches of the bridges
across the LA river

with the people
I’ll happily drive, bike, bus
all over town to see.

That’s how it is
with any relationship–
some days are just
going to be rougher
than others

but when it’s love,
real love,
it’s easy to stay.
