Austin, Texas. January 2011.

Suddenly you're home more than you're used to
your new apartment is a closet so you wander around all the time
unsure of what to do, where to go
still jealous of everyone who gets to just stay put and live.

These unexpected and aimless homecomings are a bad sign
later you'll know this was the beginning of the end
for now you draw maps in your head, circling the blocks and petting stray cats
defining a home that is thus far yet to be.
