Miz Quickly’s 11 August

Home Is Where You Are, Not Where You Were

Home, but
no one’s here.
Radio’s on, making
noise like a paint distorted day.
We were a busy array back when.

All that entering and
exiting through the door.
Just for a while.
Just for forever. Racing
in and out of our own tapestry.

Where are those words
we pushed aside.
It’s a madness of time,
and flapping about
like brittle-boned birds.

Hear it?
I hear it.
Yesterday’s voice.

We. All. Entering and exiting
as if forever is just for a while.

  1. Racing in and out of our own tapestry is so perfectly true, it is genius. 🙂

  2. I too like the tapestry line… Especially noting that I know of people who seem to be fraying at their edges.

  3. This is wonderful Misky. The sounds and images you generate are so evocative of a space of flitting. And I love the tapestry too. Just beautiful.

  4. Many of the other superlative adjectives have been taken, so let me just say, “Phenomenal”.
