( 1934- 2014)
ANYWHERE COULD BE SOMEWHERE
I might have come from the high country, or maybe the low country, I don’t
recall which. I might have come from the city, but what city in what country
is beyond me. I might have come from the outskirts of a city from which oth-
ers have come or maybe a city from which only I have come. Who’s to know?
Who’s to decide if it rained or the sun was out? Who’s to remember? They
say things are happening at the border, but which border is anyone’s guess.
They mention a hotel where it doesn’t matter if you’ve forgotten your suitcase;
there’ll be another one waiting, big enough, and just for you.
Anywhere Could Be Somewhere
