Inevitable Cities


Romantic cities
beautiful grime, take this blood
shed from broad shoulders
drained for you

Invisible cities
can not be put by,
no matter how vast
your distant horizon

Inevitable cities
even the farm girl
drags a consonant line: a road
in the dirt

About vsvevg

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.
