Last trip home


on the last day
as the rain fell
and the quiet spread around
the house
windows covered with splattered rain
the mud flowing in rivers down the
sidewalk to the street
and the car,
steam rising
filling the air with clouds
and the house
with quiet.
A quiet cold filling the room
turning around
suitcase in hand
to leave again
to be alone.
