"New Orleans is my one true love
She feeds me good things
Shows my soul how to love
She gives my imagination no boundaries
Exposes impossibles
Can give you a fairy-tale and a nightmare in the same day
A true bitch I can’t walk away from
I try and try and every time she wins
She shows
She loves
She makes me giggle and burst out laughing
Scared, I hide
I like to think I’m her favorite bear cub
she never wants to stop holding or show all sides of life..."
