leaving and returning

every home
everywhere
is so different

each with
its own set of
idiosyncrasies

various
appliances in
disrepair

difficulties
with coordination

ineffective
cleaning schemes

traffic
traffic
traffic

but
they are
all home

so i go
and return
again

and all the
headaches
fade

because all the
missing

only leaves
space for
appreciation

that’s not
why i leave,
though,

no,
it’s not
annoyance
that sends
me to the road

it’s that
i’ve been blessed
with homes
in so many places

so there is always
another place
i need to go love

there is always
a place
that i miss.
