me The Sprawl

They heard me singing and they told me to stop

Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock

These days my life, I feel it has no purpose

But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

This is still the coolest place I have ever visited. Staying overnight in a hostel on the water- hearing the fisherman’s call at 4am, buying pineapple off a canoe, eating the best fish dinner of my life.

Impractical. Bizarre. Tourist trap. Call it whatever you want. I loved it.
