Holiday


Now, everything
is scaled down:
food, drink, love,
all gradually fade
into the distance,
until they finally
disappear.

We're not sure
we've had enough,
if we'll like
where we're going,
if we'll ever get back
this way,
again.

But I'm told
we'll be fine,
everyone's waiting
for us to go,
they'll drop us off
this afternoon.

From what I hear,
we'll be able to relax
right away, just as soon
as we arrive.
