“where we are” by Gerald Locklin

i envy those
who live in two places:
new york, say, and london;
wales and spain;
l.a. and paris;
hawaii and switzerland.

there is always the anticipation
of the challenge, the chance that what is wrong
is the result of where you are.  i have
always loved both the freshness of
arriving and the relief of leaving.  with
two homes every move would be a homecoming.
i am not even considering the weather, hot
or cold, dry or wet: i am talking about hope.
