A return to original innocence:
Go to the movie theatre
and watch the grown men weep.
I will return of course as Cary Grant,
someone suave out of Scott Fitzgerald,
not the starved dog I was
Tom Wolfe said it:
You can’t go home again.
But you can return for holidays
and having some laundry done
one may return as a rock, a ceiling
think of the labor of stillness
of staying up there
May I meet her again, no matter our form in returning:
perhaps I'll be a frog king
gazing at a sunflower
