I had to write an ode to you.
I dragged my feet on your streets
never once looking down at the mess I was making.
I cursed your unpaved roads while driving on them.
don't let the earthquakes stop you
from building more than two-stories high.
Look at all of your skyscrapers-
you were afraid they wouldn't last this long.
for assuming you'd never change.
I was hungry
and couldn't find a place to eat.
