“And he never had the sense of home so much as when he felt that he was going there.  

It was only when he got there that his homelessness began.”

Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again

 

I don’t exist here

not in dust

nor echoes

UR stucco heart jagged

gate fixed

Yet perdition leaks in

w/mourning doves’ censure

effacing refuge

Rituals: At Thanksgiving Day

Happy Forgiving Day

distant kin

eat hearts out

Sudden death play-offs

tackle tribe rivalries

siblings ledger scores

Discard all leftovers

First Born

Anointed

blue ribbon shrine

pristine shoes

Daddy toe waltzes

bedroom sanctum

car keys

genetic guilt

default executor

Last shovelful of dirt

Adieu

A Road to Nowhere…

Line in sand

cross 2 foam kisses

Listen 2 gulls gossip

find anonymous messages in shells

Walk beach & sea fills steps

as if U never were

Whirlwind

Hurricane Ike slams 1900 Hurricane Memorial on Galveston Seawall

Wicked witch rides wind

passes, sheering branches

ghosts rustle atop roofs

ghouls howl thunder

cackle lightening

storm churns nite terrors
