to tell the truth, as soon

to tell the truth, as soon
as i have settled into
the wait at the gate,
boarding pass in hand,
homeward bound,
i am split into two –
one in anticipation,
with joy, the other,
already in the future,
sitting at another
gate, heart
untangling the
strings that keep
pulling me
home, taut with
renewed longing –
waiting to be whole

i have special

i have special
powers that
have everything
and nothing
to do with how
you see me in the
– a window,
a gate, an indecisive
waistline, a history
of heartbreak
