First Hand

11 July 2013
Folks who know you think,
"Ah, yes, I saw that coming," or
"Huh. I always liked her, I wonder
if I was mistaken" or, to a friend,
"I dodged that bullet."
Strangers think--
well, who knows what they think,
but they must think something?
They're the ones with questions
they won't ask-- it wouldn't be polite.
But they wonder which
part of you someone couldn't live with,
and when they'll have the knowledge
first hand.

"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."
