love letters to houston [1]

bayou city,
humidity & hurricanes
a paradox of oil & green.

clutch city,
shapely skyline
ferociously tenacious.

htown,
sassy & well read
exquisitely caffeinated,
spiritual & religious.

you have filled me
with queso,
& craft beer,
made me sweat,
laugh
& cry.

you have loved me.
and i have loved you

to the haters, FYHA.

houston,
you may keep my heart,
you humid,
temperamental beast of a city.

(the roaches, however, you may keep to yourself)
