while cleaning,

while cleaning,
there are times
when i leave
the vacuum
on for two
full seconds
longer than
necessary
to drown out the
loneliness,
as if the vortical
turbulence could
take me away,
tucked into ruby
slippers, and never
stop until home
is not just a
place, but a
feeling pinned down
.

there is something

there is something
about the
airport that sucks
an entire day
away, tucks it into
the little granular
pockets sewn into
the inside of its
black hole –
something that
brings people
together, or tears
people away
from their
better selves
