I Miss Bagels and Lockes




I miss the bagels on the Sunday mornings,

                                    spread thick with scanion cream cheese

                             toasted lightly, to the perfect shade of brown

                        centered twice over—

                                                just the right amount

                                                            —with slivers of salmon flesh

            eaten at just the right time

                        —so that the bagel’s still soft.


                                                                                    It melts in your mouth,

                                                                                         better than M&M’s ever could.


I miss the bright sunshine,

                                      —unflawed by smog or pollution—

                             scattered with falling







k          o         




                                                                                                               beneath my feet,

                                                                                                            and in the air,


                                                                                                                        all around me.




I miss the hazy afternoon light…




                        (not the kind

                                    overcast by exhaust fumes

                                                                        –that seem to




                                                                        the air–


                                                                                                with smells

                                                                                         still foreign to me…)




                                                                                        by the sound of lawn mowers…


                                    (instead of

                                                horn honks,   and

                                                            irate yells


                                                                        scolding or scalding

                                                                            or lewdly entrepreneuring


                                             –all in a language I’ve yet to completely breath in–



                                                                        {and i’m still short of breath})




                        sweeping up whirlwind funnels of,










                                                    {like nature’s Mardi Gras)    of




                                                                        of emerald green

                                                                 and burgundy-purple


                                                            and red, Merlot wine

                                                                                    and sunshine yellow,…


                                                                        —calling out to me.}



            I miss

children raking leaves


                        {right outside my window}

            in fall coats, and labradors

               –golden hair afuzz with static—


                                                            (to ward off

                                                            the     pre-winter


                                                                                    i feel

                                                                                                            at night

                                                                                                      under a sky

                                                                                                full of stars…)}



                        Or the day with the perfect autumn blue sky,

                                                            slightly frosty with a bit of a breeze—

                                                                                    dotted with



                                                                                                     Real ones

                                                                        –whose every puff

                                                                                          ,like cottonballs,

                                                                                       in the palms of

                                                                                                            gloved hands– })



                                    –what I like to call an “Apple-Picking Weather” sky…





                                                                                    But mostly,

                                                            I miss the people,

                                                                        who, at the end of the day,

                                                                                                I eat the apple-pie with,

                                                                                         and laugh

                                                                                            over burnt bagels,  with,

                                                                                                            and cream cheese

                                                                                                    and lockes.



                                    I don’t miss home.

                                          I miss the people who make home.
