Strange pilgrims we are
forever butting heads
attempting to eclipse the other
with snark and sarcasm
building walls around our hearts
determined to erect a protective fort
when all we really want
is to curl up in the comfort
of each other

As always, these #Poesia pieces on this blog and Write Bitches are works of fiction, erupting from my incredibly over-active imagination. This piece in particular is inspired by an exercise for my writing group, The Inky Path, using the title of Marquez’s (brilliant) novel. These pieces are slightly edited, totally unscripted, super loose and probably some of my favorite works. They are perfect in their imperfections and I hope you enjoy.
