the view from new jersey

this past weekend 
my friend melissa and i 
went to ikea

 its hard to go there 
 for whatever it is you need
so much 
you suddenly think 
you need

i went to find replacement dishes
ended up 
the dishes
 a mug 
two whisks 
(and i think there was something else but i forget)

i also got to see her new apartment
when we drove back toward manhattan
we stopped at one of the overlook points
that's what we saw

i edited it a teensy bit 


apologies for the word verification but a lot of spam has been happening ...
