I like to listen
to the conversations
in the travel section
of the bookstore.
Hotel names in Barcelona.
Tiny rooms in Paris
for $70 a night.
Rainy seasons, reservations,
Rome is under construction.

I want to travel
to a Bertulluci movie,
and live the life
I’ve always wanted,
where life is art,
each meal a painting,
dinner conversation a play,
the landscape a movie
