stranger

you
left the
covers
of your
home
a long
time ago

and

you
return
totally
as an
alien
speaking
a different
language
hearing
a different
music

you
must
resign
from
being
a stranger
to the many
loved ones

  2. First, thank you for your kindness to After the Oncologist. Second- I believe creative people are ALWAYS aliens to their families and friends.
