Snow Day

22 January 2008, 8:47 PM

A rubber band stretched
down the length of a meter stick-
poised at the peak of potential energy
and more than prepared to put an eye out.

They never did snap. Nor did I.
But at day’s end, it seems I may as well have,
emotions limp as an elastic loop in the corner
of a room where I anticipated hell
as the children laughed, played,
grew tired of each other,
and all went well.

"Home is ever so far away in the palm of your hand, and how to get there it is of no use to tell you. But you will get there; you must get there; you have to get there. Everybody who is not at home, has to go home."
