My love of music

Impromptu


we were just walking

when in a tiny entrance

I saw this magic

before me

I knew i had to go

my friends didn’t need

that much begging

they knew from my expression

it was meant to be.


And they weren’t

disappointed.


Last song

crosses all my lines.

The Orpheus Theatre is beautiful too. Reminds me of the Olympia de Montreal.

Sometimes the most spontaneous moments

are the ones that you never forget.

That’s me and my bbf’s (b for bitches) since grade 7.

Yup they like when I make up

acronyms.

Or when I impress them

with my brilliance

or confuse them

with my ditziness.


But Brattle Book store

left me

with rare books and ghosts.

It’s a level of consciousness

artists feel

that feeling when dead poets

reach you

and you bolt

out of bookstores

for air.
Live in the moment

or

don’t live at all.

when you’re called fucking Canadians at a pub

you know how to shrug

with some Montreal flair.
