I'm packing
for another journey,
on my way
into another country,
not to be found
on any map,
so well-traveled,
but still unknown.

Everyone awaits
my imminent arrival,
senses my approach,
wants me to enter,
all alone.

I'll show my hosts
the things I've learned
while on the road,
as I unpack,
the cost of each 
becoming clear.

After all
my many stops,
I'll remember none more
than stopping here.
