in response to La Serena's ten thousand miles


for La Serena

that phrase:
"ten thousand miles away"
brings a familiar feeling to me.

it's the same feeling in the
wind howling tonight
as it carries
the long, low whistle
of a train to my window.

it's taking sleepy travelers
or back again.

someone like you might be on it..
someone leaving the rhythm
of their heart
ten thousand miles away.

someone like you
having a heart
wide enough to open
in more than one way.
more than one place.

touch the milagro you brought back.
inhale the lilacness of that memory.
