RETURN TO ROUTINE
(7/6/13)


vacation
over
I am
back
at home

back
to work

spinning
little prayer
wheels
of diurnal
duties

singing
my personal
tiger
to sleep
with the continual
repetition
of the everyday

the daily
drag
that used
to drive me
crazy

now it
soothes
me

centers
me

I understand
that
some need
an escape
from the ordinary

but I look forward
to these trips
simply to reset
my appreciation
for what
I really
have

what
I really
need

~

across
the table
I see only
the impatience
for another
journey
