Dreams 2022

Round The World
(9/5/2022)


she
told me
of a summer
in Europe

road trips
to Mexico

Central America

two
extended vacations
in Brazil

a week
in Tokyo

all she knew
of me
was my 30+
years
in Tulsa

“I really
don’t think that
you can know
yourself
until you’ve
traveled

she tells
me

“until
you’ve seen
yourself
in relation
to other locations

to other cultures”

she did seem
really
to know herself

to the exclusion
of most other

all her travel
leading her
to the same
place

as me
