Call Me Home

I still remember
grazing your gravel-fed roads
with skinned knees that burned
in hopes that I still had time
to bait my line before you
called me home for sweet-roll pie

  1. I’m happy you’ve here, Titli! If you enjoy my work, look back through the rest of my archives. I’ve been working on a Waka manuscript last year, and part of this, and this is where I experiment. I would love to hear your opinion on them.
