  • But, how do I tell him?

    Stop our idle chatter,

    and tell him about my irrepressible urge

    to disappear into the night.

    Every night, any night.

    Interrupt his childhood memory,

    with the notion that nowhere

    feels like home anymore.

    Except airports.

    And planes for the first 10 seconds

    after taking my seat.

    How do I explain, in the middle

    of talking about home gardens,

    that the only homes I want to own

    are cabins at the bases of cliffs

    and the edges of seas

    and in the middle of woods,

    covered in moss.

    I'm not sure how to slip

    my desire to be on a road

    cold

    and lonely

    and lost

    into my discussion of client emails

    and work projects.

    How do you ask a person

    if they understand your deepest,

    darkest need to run?

    How do you ask a person

    if they'd run with you?
