When I was young I traveled often
for three months in Barcelona
a silk sac of earrings perfume three kimonos
in three lengths I bought material a friend made them
to wear separately or together
high purple shoes red bathing suit.
Packing was nothing.
Only books were bulky.
Nova Scotia for 2 weeks I consider
weather and cold and feet and hiking trails
and nuts and a water bottle. Downloading
audio books. All that remains from traveling
before a small silk sac of earrings.
