I washed my hair
with the same travel size shampoo I haven't used since England
a surprise--
my senses highjacked
because I haven't been breathing
all that deep
these months.
I wanted
to be
all at sea,
and realized it wasn't just there
but northern Virginia's pines
and the creek in my hometown
and the roads that lead to Oxford
and their cool pockets of air between trees
that i just can't seem to find right now
even though i keep looking
My perceptions, maybe, are playing tricks on me.
