Gorgeous and Loved at Grub Street

And when they ask you what you mean, exactly, when you say you are gorgeous and loved at Grub Street, tell them about the nights you are in a classroom overlooking Central Burying Ground up high on the 4th floor, surrounded only in the best intention of story, in words, and for that moment whatever awaits at home (as in you) is made all the more the real, there.
