Addio, 2012

December 28, 2012

It’s not even gone, and I’m already nostalgic.

2012 will be abandoned like an old Sicilian house. Cobwebs of memory will trail over ¬†bleached walls. Doubts will creep in. Ghosts will whisper. A new generation will carve initials into decaying walls they don’t understand.

Farewell sorbet-pink days. Farewell sunlit skies. Farewell sweet grasses.

Must you push us out so soon, 2012? Can’t we linger in your embrace a little longer?

What awaits us through those dusty green doors?

Addio, 2012.
