fore/aft

what is behind us and what is before us

permanent residency, we have landed

dual citizenship?

10

11

the marker of 11 years touches a nerve 

that 10 left unfrayed

impermanence

a calm belonging

finding a safe inlet

the subtle collecting of others castoffs                                                                                                                       

fabric scraps, half used skeins of yarn. the curating                                                                                                   

of crap. a wrapping                                                                                                                                                     

myself in others histories                                                                                                                                           

the sailing in to the future

filling bags to pass

along.

lightening 

our load
