Swiped in Barcelona. Nobody’s going to see it
Again. Go have some tapas and try to have
Fun. The squares are swarming with people
Who act as if no one has taken their bags.
The sangria’s tasty. The ocean looks nice.
Unaccompanied men and women  walk

Through tight spaces like that you were in.
They seem unconcerned. Just go on as
You would have, now a bit wiser, the way
You became back at home when you
Opened that e-mail and found yourself
