THINGS TO BUY IN NEW BRUNSWICK
Everyone in Fredericton, New Brunswick keeps asking why I moved here. I buy a plane ticket. I buy another plane ticket. I check my bank balance. I check the time change, I check the clock, I left but didn’t leave you, I throw loneliness away like old clothes. I buy a winter blanket for when it gets cold. Everyone keeps reminding me it will get cold.
