the last night


the unexplored territory (of new home's front hall)

without a Brooklyn address.
For tomorrow,
we sign.

And so will begin the
BIG BROWNSTONE ADVENTURE
of little Family Chilov in Clinton Hill
and all the life-shifting,
borough-exodus-ing+entering,
washing-machine-of-our-own claiming,
Brooklyn-exploring,
home-owning,
grill-on-deck having,
snow-shoveling,
no-super-to-call-so-leak-be-gone wishing,
"it's upstairs/downstairs" stating,
happy + sun-loving plant nurturing,
backyard-a-clutter-with-children's-crap evolving,
BUY IN BULK-adopting,
room-for-more (books, shoes, umbrellas, large pot, king-size bed, dining table, child) toasting,
neighborly-feeling,
subway-commuting,
stuff that lies ahead.

So, mr/ms 17 Lefferts Place. Get ready and gather your skirt + wits about you, there'll be a new (family) of sheriffs in town...

AND WE CANNOT WAIT

With love from Manhattan's Upper West Side, for now.
