THE GOODBYE GIRL

my words are slow
and stick to the roof of my mouth.
all of the thoughts
however
drift and tumble and roll
tossed around by the great prairie wind.

i am leaving.
there is so much to do
(yet isn't there always).
sometimes
i think about it too much.
getting too excited.
standing on the back porch
i set my phone down on the ledge and kick off my black shoes
and audibly tell my mind to shut up.
it's just  a whisper
(and it doesn't really do the trick).

i am coming back.
just give me one month.
and then two.
and summer here will be almost over.
but will i miss it?

    1. oh wait, it's because you can trace every single day back to my heart. there are golden strings [summer], forest strings [spring], cream strings [winter], and speckled brown strings [autumn.] and i think i love each of them a little too much that goodbye just plays a sorrowful tune.
      learning how to love to let go.
      but i am a hoarder of days and of sounds, loving loving loving. so teach me the tune that is more simple, that loves enough to let go.
