Ten foot glass doors

The architecture is something else
Iron lace
Sculpted lion heads adorning the sides of a
building that’s hidden behind cornstalk fences
Orange and palm trees
Rose bushes and cypress trees and
gas lamps illuminating broken sidewalks
that can eat you alive
Ceilings much higher than they need to be
make for ten-foot glass doors that
open onto balconies where you can
greet the dawn, bloody mary in hand

You’re going to need it
Relaxing is hard work
