This Foot and The One in Front of It

My building smells like sour fish and stale cigarettes and on the bathroom wall is this quote:

Where are you hurrying to?
You will see the same moon tonight
wherever you go.

- Izumi Shikibu

Walking through Astoria last night, I thought about two cities that I love and I thought about what a big, funny world it is and then I thought, Maybe this is all that matters. Just this foot and the one in front of it.
