Some things are inadequate;
Trying to describe the way a passing train smells like a burnt out match
Or how your girlfriend drives barefoot to feel the pedal under her crooked pinkie toe
Or how the small of a stranger’s back peeks out from between his jeans and his t-shirt when he rides his Peugot down Bloor (goodbye)
Or how the sky is different in the North- bigger and bleaker and lovely.
