Home away

Away,

away

from home…

and this is not home,

but today it carries that label,

and so it must suffice.

But,

It’s not home,

and that home

is that place

which labels

me.

Alone together

I had decided
that what I wanted
was some sort
of regular social
interaction:
some group
that needed me.
The thought died,
however,
on the doorstep
of my commitment
to never needing people
or desiring
anything too social.
I don’t want
to be needed,
it seems.
