COMING HOME

Alone and changed
seeking solitude again
as a snot-nosed kid
spinning a radio dial
lazing away in a tree
precious moments
turning pages slowly
never able to complete
coming home alone
others waiting still
torn and bloodied
having gone on before
or maybe just waiting
around the next bend
over the next hill
in a bunker buried
thus never as one
coming home again
something missing
something lost
yet just there now
coming home alone!
