the world was not a place i wanted to explore
i’ve become well acquainted with these infrastructures
and the way chemical wetness hung in the air
after it had been raining for a while 
and baby, it suited me just fine

i did not crave to be under permanently blue skies
or shadowed by silhouettes of unfamiliar skyscrapers
the ground beneath me held me erect 
inside these walls i am a complete mosaic of squares
and my memories gather like fallen petals 

under intimate slants of light i am deja vu’d
by places i had visited but never really seen
i am under no constraints of godliness
the world will modify without me
and darling, i don't mind.
