Barcelona / History
Why we chose this I will never know. Nor forget.
Niagara Falls was so much closer.
History, you said, at the travel office.
History of what, I countered. But there we went.
Some say the word means "ninth boat"
but ultimately it is a mystery. Much like us.
As all honeymoons do end, ours did, as well.
I guess I might have been shocked at how sudden
ly it did. All those cathedrals, and monuments
betokening permanence. As one wipes themself
dry of a cataract unseen -- we thought those
separate unspoken thoughts on the return flight.
