No Reentry

maybe our feelings don’t get stuck in our bodies

but in the rooms where we felt them

I’ve always tried to go back

it’s absurd that you can’t

they’re the most important rooms of your life

dreams don’t recognize propriety nor property

the unconscious hasn’t caught up, even, with life in the 20th century

when we started to have too many homes

how is it that I could have loved and dreamed and cried and worked and fought so hard

maybe that’s why we have public spaces, for the possibility of return

she drove all day to the old house, turned off the engine, decided not to ring the bell

forever like a soap cake half melted onto the sink
