My name is Zenia Maria Pakker-Kozicki and I am Seattle. I mean, I am a Seattleite. This city is my home and within it are my homes away from home, in those parks, coffee shops, vagabond getaways and secret urban cubbies holes. And yet my home is foremost a cozy, refurbished, 65 foot, 1926 wooden tugboat that my father made into a floating piece of art. I dream with wanderlust, like so many. I shy away from those areas too clean and well lit, seek out cigarette smoke and late night conversations. I am lucky and I know it. Speak, poet.
