WELCOME TO MIAMI







Going somewhere with Faye can be like taking the kids grocery shopping. We lock her in the car with a crack in the window and promise to be back in five minutes, but she's gone. We're locked out. We make up for the cold weather with 6oz burgers covered in hot peppers (a burrito for the vegetarian). A lack of colour seems to suit this dull season.
I should move us all to Miami. Shovels-Across-Canada digging up the earth and planting it on the bursting belly of this planet, scorched under the temperamental sun. From Brazil to Kenya, Somalia to the Congo. We could be that remote island in the South Pacific, Kanata.

Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in your hand.
We'll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drumband.
Going down on Kokomo
