Today’s Oneword: Irreverent
The temples shine in the sun as if they were suns themselves. Though the rest of the place is dirty, and smells like an outhouse that hasn’t been mucked out in centuries. Which in some ways it is. I don’t mean to sound irreverent, this city is everything I thought it would be and more. It’s just that I didn’t come here with my eyes shining. I guess I just get to see that it isn’t all beautiful. The misery here is as thick as the shite. Makes me wonder why it’s only the temples that get to shine.
