To leave behind baggage
forced to un-occupy
temporary shelter, driven
by refusal to confront
deception, pain, grief folded
in abandoned luggage left
tethered feelings cut
there he sat before
open blankness seething
sea, with nothing, not part of him
a thin line of horizon
separating his view of blue.
