Travellers

Again, the suitcases brimming

with underwear, electronics,

and the currency of strangers.

After a night over the ocean,

we find other items: toothbrush,

a car for the opposite side of the road.

The years have flown behind us

in the headwinds . . .

–Excerpt from “Travellers” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013).
