quito / weather forecast

quito, ecuador / 52℉ - chance of rain

she is lost inside this place.

this mountain city

tied in a lover's knot

around an active volcano;

with city lights that

twist and spin

like a river of lava.

scared she won't recognize

the end when it comes.

- will it seem like

an average midnight

of fire in the alleys?

or will she recognize

the touch of the last bit

of burning

she'll ever know?
