When the phone call finally found me
I was deployed to the city of students
given a mission
and shiped by train
To the city of cities

an apple so ripe
its juice is hard cider
but this did nothing
to loosen the knot of nerve
lodged in my empty stomach

and upon arival
i was shaken and battered


if you look hard
you can see
there are still stars
in these bleary eyes
