Year 2: Day 48 – Go

It’s not that I want to leave
six boxes of donated granola bars
and license plate renewal forms-
all that will still be here
when I get back-
kids that can’t do long division
and two chess games left to play,
paper clips hanging from the ceiling
and snow in the library-
I sortof love it anyway,
but it just can’t be always.

I have to be a different kind of beast sometimes
or it’s all useless.
We all have to go
or we’re not
really here
and that’s too many of us
already.

Maybe I’ll bring something back.
