a stream of unconsciousness written with word counter . . . :

she packed her tapestry cloth bag

her portmanteau of words and phrases in world languages

streaking dawn, she travelled full noon to evening-tide

cross skies of transitional blues and hues of steel grey

shadowing clouds, stalking shadows

star-blankets, moon-crests on quilts of ocean waves

passing equinox to solstice; then repeat

home: where she is not

journey: when she isn’t
