Soon but not yet we will leave here

Soon but not yet we will leave here, this house that’s been the longest time and home we’ve ever known, or probably ever will know. This turning left out of, or uphill right out of at the beginning of every walk. The knowing the bin days and which week is which. A catalogue of familiars […]
