7 || Dinner & Dessert
Winding snake of eager sweet-tooths
lined outside an ice cream shop.
There are 6 other ice cream shops on the street.
I get in line anyway.
Very happy I did.
Take the time to wander.
My Birkenstocks lead me
through antiquated streets as
day gives way to familiar night.
Walking home in Klosterneuburg,
I’ve got a cardigan sent with love from Tampa
and an expansive blanket of stars
to protect me from the crisp nachtluft.
5 || Tiergarten Schönbrunn
Happy Fourth of July
Tried Lángos instead
of having a Hot Dog.
Let freedom ring?

343 steps, spiraling.
Alma’s afraid of heights,
but only realizes on the way down.
I guess sometimes we realize things
we’re afraid of just a little too late.
She climbs a tree anyway,
