Shelf #27

Carved by rough hands
for profit only
and I became a permanent member
of shelf #27.

gears, surrounded, claustrophobic
my mind disappears into
a touch, feeling.

how do I say farewell to something
secure and supportive?

New world and eyes
repaired to fit the time
I have missed.

Moving forward feels
similar to departing in
the opposite way
I miss #27.

When I return I find
dust covered shelf #27
it is not the same.
I am changed beyond my home.
