The world is so big I seem to have no words for it.
Having been out there in it, I feel strangely silenced.
I journeyed forth and found myself in places I would never have expected, l
it with lights I never knew were burning,
whipped by wind I never knew could blow.
To travel so far and find my own self standing on some quiet shore, to hear my own footsteps clatter along the streets of unknown places, to gaze at the universe within a Victorian glass perfume bottle in a dusty vitrine: these things need to settle in my head.
I opened my mouth, and all my words have blown away.
For the time being.
