On Returning Home
“Upon my return… …I was afraid more than I had been, even of motels so much so that for months every tire blow-out was final, every strange car near the house kept watch and I strained even to remember things impossible to forget. “ from “Return” by Carolyn Forche I just remembered what an insomniac I become when I am home.

today i wore a pair of kevin’s socks. too big, they filled up my boots like his problems, always two sizes too big my toes swallowed up inside the threads- thick, comfortable, but too warm. the same comfort that kept me around so long.
