I Am Not Quite Myself Today

Today I am a journeyer, a woman of the world


I am someone who says goodbye

without tears, who does not consider

whence the next meal will come

I am someone who leaves behind the hairdryer

(there are always hats), someone who irons her slacks


Today I forego nature for an international flight

Today my heart glows under city lights


Inspired by Quickly’s Prompt for April 24: Write a poem in which you are not quite yourself.
