want, need of a
recess from routine
scheme, strategy, location
pricing flight, condo, car
purge savings, spend!
a Maui paradise it is to be
on to counting sleeps
packing, unpacking, repacking
what to take, to wear
arrival of departure






step off the plane into
a damp hug of humidity
fragrant tuberose travels
the hot breeze
to car, to condo
to hear…
rhythm of surf
the world falls away
into a new cycle of
“What should we do today?”


by DC Lessoway

“back to reality,” she said
a jolt to my spine
after a few weeks of
“What should we do today?”
“What should we make for lunch?” as
the regimen of routine manifests
clouds sink, becoming fog
