Runaway

Remember all those
children's books
where
running away was
simple,
easy?
Tie some clothes and a snack
to
then end
of a stick
...and just run--
walk--
away...
May I join you?
No,
I don't have much.
Just paper and
a pen.
But really, that's all I need.
Paper
as the cloth that's holding my
"running-away things"
and the pen as the stick,
balancing the weight.
May I join you?
Please?
I may not go far, or even
move at all,
but I am still
a runaway.
