The journey
left me jaded.


I went to pick up things
to use them as copiously

as salt and pepper.


I came back with
a baggage that

feels like dead weight

tied my ankle.


My unwillingness
to own my belongings

could eclipse my sanity

any moment from now.


But, what will I do
if there’s nothing

to drag around along?


Where will I add
appendices, footnotes

and glossaries?


There! a new signboard
reads the prelude

to a new place.


Dear, I hope the vessel has
enough space for another

bag on the return journey.
