I

I moved here from far away. I wanted

to be elsewhere from what I left, and this

was that. But on my back porch tonight, I

searched aimlessly for the exotic I found

then. Now, I am only home.

A woman lives a few blocks away, and

she asked me to walk with her. She made me feel

different. I dream of her iridescent dress, her

shimmer. Her angle of repose, the line

of her falling into my walking. It’s now

136 days of 10,000 paces. Where

am I walking toward, aside from circles?
