Poetry anytime, Literature

I wanted to know when and where it would take me to the sky
When it would twist and turn cold
When cliffs would transform into smiling faces
dripping gravel from their lips
When the colored squares of the map would pop up in front of me
like those books I used to read as a child
Rising to wide-eyed retribution

I wanted to know

“And thus began another strange ritual of mine. Along with sitting in parking lots and hiding under bed sheets, I was now accustomed to wandering the aisles of grocery stores. For nothing. I was there to buy nothing, yet I found solace walking each aisle, absorbing the colors and people, pretending to be a local—sometimes holding a basket just to fool them into smiling at me.

‘Who’s that?’ I imagined them thinking.
Yeah, I live here. I belong.”
