to play again as children
who have lost and found their way

and every culture, there will be

in the early days of
discovering
teleportation, people flocked
in and out of
cities, towns, endangered
ecosystems, any
place they could
imagine.

to make up new and old
excuses for why they
couldn’t drop in on
loved ones, spend any
more time than before

eliminator widgets, quantum
dissociation syndrome,
the cost, work, dog duties.
the excuses couldn’t
have imagined better
champions, we can
stop imagining teleportation

doing anything

about it – dream, dreamers, then
wake up and get to work on it

so that it stretches
and stretches and
stretches, and
can call no
place home
