my vixen friend decided to surprise me at work.
even though i was tired dealing with the ( x byob ) all day,
she made sure i was coming out.
i realllllly wanted to go home and take a nap.
nah she wasn’t having it.
plus she had a car.
i like cars…
so we headed over to the hell’s kitchen to see what we could get into.
we didn’t have any idea of where we wanted to eat,
so she parked the car and we just walked around.
usually with walking around in new yawk,
you find something interesting.
we ended up at a nice little italian spot named esca.
esca in italian actually means “bait”.
wasn’t expensive and the atmosphere was intimate.
a nice place to just talk about nothing in particular.
it was pretty packed,
but we got a nice seat somewhere in the back.
after an amazing dinner with some wine,
we decided to just walk around since the weather was perfect.
one thing i love is walking around the back neighborhoods of new yawk.
exploring and being baited into my imagination.
i often imagine living in the town houses,
and the gentrified lofts.
ones i’m sure you could afford selling meth.
what would it be like to live in them?
how would i decorate?
would i have curtains?
i can’t get with the “see all in my apartment” living.
being there makes me want more.
i deserve to live there.
star fox (rip) and i would have these late night talks about our futures.
i’d light a couple white candles and we would live through our imaginations.
it sounds weird to some,
but it made me want to live.
strive for more on the earth.
i’m tired of the hood honestly.
it’s a dead end.
i also noticed something about the area.
it seemed like a place wolves brought foxes they were dating on the low.
they were everywhere.
i mean it was a place you could get lost and not be found.
every block was a place to get to know someone better.
like the wolf and fox i got mesmerized with.
wolf was spanish.
you could not ignore his arms in his tight dress shirt.
he was probably a little younger than me.
looked like he just got off work.
def my type.
he looked nervous when he saw us walking towards them.
walking ahead of his equally cute fox.
fox had his head in his phone.
i didn’t get to see his face,
but he was letting his wolf lead.
in my mind,
they were headed towards esca for dinner.
i felt happy for them.
no need to hate on them.
i’m always happy for someone who can find someone for this world.
even if its for a second.
gives us hope out here.
i’m working towards my goals.
paying off some bills right now,
but i will be in a position to catch it all one day.
here are some shots from the night:
