a kind of birthday / X everyday

we celebrated our anniversary in paris
though it should have been berlin
midnight walks in the interim
of gusty drizzly days and nights of grey

we are essentially the same
different packaging but still
wearing our favorite coats

i still hate goodbyes

i saw your everyday paris
peered in your windows
through the cracks
while the curtains were drawn

your white walls
look clean
and unencumbered
from out here

while FNAC bags and cardboard boxes
hide the building materials
of the controlled exposure
of your secrets
