Celebrating a Year

week 31 ~ what if I never returned from Rio

me.31what if I never returned from Rio
simply bought a flat in Urca and told
my kids to sell the house let life unfold
for me here as a Carioca no
longer tied to the past no one would know
anything about me except I smile
a lot and play a mean bandolim while
I drink capirinhas learn to let go
of who I was it’s a tempting thought so
it keeps popping back up in my brain to
start again with a clean slate just undo
what’s been lost and move over to the slow
lane choosing a small life with certainty
soaking up the sun that pours over me
