other things learn
the trick of prosperity
in the empty house —
shoes from later day lovers,
obscura from teenage years,
silverfish, water,
three species of ants,
all connected by shame.

riding westward,
over and over,
in the wake of other things.
like namanga behind the hill,
the friendly man —
a return to immigration officers,
as friends continue to leave —
