putting things away
takes time and energy – we
enter week three with

our negotiation skills
intact, unpacking, restoring

looking for something

looking for something
in the middle of spring and

like the messiest of all

up in a different place to
call home, unpacking, unpacking

on the morning

on the morning
after, there was less
light when we awoke
at five, right back to
unpacking after a
move, more
light in every
corner where boxes
continued to be
lost, then
found
, the same
amount of light
in our hearts, having
made it this
far, cityslicking

you came back to the

you came back to the
city from a week at the
lakes smelling
different, new. at first
we thought it was
nature, the woods,
fresh air, and then
maybe the hotel soap.
by evening, we
identified it as
sunscreen and,
while you unpacked, i
was able to put away
the thought of
separation, restock
the shelf behind
our bathroom
mirror with all
of your familiar things

i purchased some
soulmate material
at a store along
the interstate
highway. the
instructions on
the packaging simply
read, be prepared
to put in some
time
. it’s been sitting
in the garage,
waiting patiently
for the unboxing
