.

Philly then New York,

Arizona, Alaska

and Argentina.

.

Now it’s New Hampshire

and my home is everywhere

and nowhere at once.

.

This bright green landscape

blurry with the pounding rain –

“I’m Coming Home” plays.

.

I miss everyone,

I miss everywhere even

the place I’m standing.

.

My neighbor’s red roof

these puffs of Hydrangea –

Oh, how familiar!

politics heat up

in St. Paul* — humidity

climbs and storms approach

* The Minnesota state government shut down at midnight, and with it, state parks, camp grounds, highway rest stops, zoos, horse racing tracks, carnival ride inspections, restaurant inspections and a long list of other state-funded agencies just in time for the 4th of July holiday. The legislators and the governor cannot agree on a budget. There is little hope that either side is willing to compromise. Nobody knows how long this will go on.  Thousands of state employees have been laid off. Their last day of work was yesterday.

I wake with a start.

He’s gone. How did I sleep through

his leaving? First rain.
