There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to see the ways in which you yourself have altered.- nelson mandela

A brown fuzzy blanket
The smell of emptiness
Stuff scattered about
A deathly quiet day
Five years visiting
Watching eclipses in old worn chairs
Tripping in shoes three times bigger than my little feet
“My little tangerine peeler”
He’d say when I sat on his brown chair
Walking along the beach
Playing with play-dough
Remembrance of my childhood
A man I will never forget
Shots fired
Ashes placed
Into a wall
No more smiling face
