Sasha Driscoll // HOW TO GET THE BEST VIEW OF BOSTON

Start in Alewife, watch every person there rush by

each on their own little journey to somewhere.

Catch the next inbound train,

sit down,

put in your headphones,

observe your surroundings,

and wait.

Get off at Harvard and begin your walk.

Eventually the sun will set over the western horizon

and the cold of night will become too much to bear.

Enter the nearest building and climb all the way to the top,

every stairwell, step by step until you reach the highest floor.

Step outside,

and look.

Look across the river at the city skyline,

surrounded by your favorite people

and enjoy the best view of Boston.
