Snapshots of Home

Kitchen bar stools,
Late night drives.
Garden State soundtrack still in my car.
Neighbors to the left and to the right.
Stars in the sky, not just city light.

Big double bed,
Christmas decorations.
Starbucks drink before getting the tree.
Plate of those Waffle House hash browns,
among Richmond City’s late night sounds.

Pine trees,
Autumn leaves,
Football season,
Watching TV for no reason.
Dog hair on your clothes,
forgetting about your penniless woes,
The smell of fireplaces in the air
Yes, the reasons to visit Virginia are certainly all there.

After a quick trip home, I'm back in the city until Christmas. I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was marvelous, and that you had ample opportunity to eat entirely too much.
