London’s Dreamers

Name a picture
of any foreign place
and I bet you—
I have it pasted on
a flashy poster-board.

Last summer,
I flew across the Atlantic
with my best buds. We drew
red, white, and blue stripes, blinding
both Big Ben’s clockwork hands.

By double-decker trolleys,
we stole the city’s red velvet bulbs
and its night luminescence.

We paved classical streets;
rode the rainy day ribbons.

Yeah, you could say I remember
last summer.

It’s hard to forget Britain’s antique style
and her lively comeliness,
when I fell deep into sophisticated galore.

There are no words
left in my skies.
I kept red roses and three lions
imprinted on my heart, as I
wrapped my head around the concept of being
a London dreamer.
