in toronto

and about to become a godmother
hmmm influence i guess
and at the same time
everything changes
it is funny
i moved to ottawa
and have become intolerant
of over-trafficked areas on a saturday early eve
how do people deal
and yet
when i say i live in ottawa
i hear the same response
dull boring conservative
well try to find a conservative mp in ottawa
there just aren't any
and if seeing deer on the way to the airport
and the simple beauty of bare birches with a touch of snow are boring
then stay where you are
i will take my place in the silence
and the perfection of places
where no one expects you to dress up to live your life
come as you are
brace for the cold
and expect a warmer welcome.
