departures are much

arrivals are like

arrivals are like
departures only at the

left running,
waiting for a sign

on departures and

remember that year

remember that year
when we lost so
many… was the

by any muscles
so the human spirit
keeps taking the bait

tucked into childhood memories,

as if it were the best
place to stop time,
delay departures
