Arizona happened.

Arizona happened.
Like life happens.

It popped up as a possibility
Just a concept, Arizona was a reckless adventure
One unlikely spot in the map

As a reality,
Arizona was radical, raw
And painful.
Arizona was a mirror

Arizona was a punch in the face,
a desert begging for life
an empty space waiting to be filled
by my crisp Brazilian soul

It took such a long time
So many days
-and nights-
for me to call you home, Arizona.

Finally to find myself in the middle
of your aridness.
