Buying a Ticket to Home

spaces are cleared
candles in windows
lavender sheets on the bed
all that remains,
is the knock at the door

  1. spruced exteriors/ decorations galore/ fresh flowers adorn the front door/ eyes alight with constant vigil/ come moment; come, gather strength for that knock!!

  2. time is the only desire

    wearing us as skin
    and bones
    we climb the Dawns
    we mount the knives
    in the wind with clocks
    we wade silently
    in the reeds
    basket-ing the tides
    as they say look
    at every door
    to find your portal lean
    and open every window
    to dress those smiles
    the wanting
    and the waiting
