...so resilient (Day 628)


Waving goodbye 
to those days at the beach
to your first morning of summer vacation
to the faintly-spicy air of impending autumn
and the scent of freshly opened crayons 
   in that daffodil-papered kitchen. 
The final box stowed.
The last turn of that particular key
   in that tricky lock.
You’ll have your own room!
You’ll get to make new friends!
You will have so much exploring to do!
Looking back through the rear window,
you sigh, and, protectively, decide not to tell 
them they’re not fooling you. After all: 
Resilience is a dish best served cold.
