to and fro


  I'm coming home again

  I'm leaving soon 

  there is nothing inevitable 

  in creature comforts 

  no stuff in the easy chair 

  that warps around the room

  like light or gravity 

  I am listening to the rain 

  sound perfectly loud and clear 

  with just one ear, one eye

  one bone shuddering and shuttered

  Sam-Sara, my old friend 

  let me leave this seat

  this ochre mood

  this judge's robbery 

  I've come to and fro
