Journey

The curtain drops
your show is over
your last poetry recital-
beautiful faces
all disappear

You pack all your
moments

in the bottom
of your suitcase

cover them with
your memories

a huge
"we will miss you card"

with the signatures
of all your

fellow poets.
you pack all of
them

cover them with
your memories-

piles,piles and
piles of them.

you close the lid
tightly

(you have everything
from a stay abroad)

you head back home.

Back home
you unpack.
everything lies in
disarray

exposed,vulnerable,
silent.

But-
as you rearrange
the new shelves

you have created,
suddenly you notice-
how everything looks

different,
you notice how everyone
has changed
-
Even the face in the mirror.
