What’s left to do? Is it better to leave
a thing or two undone? Will one loaf
suffice, or will we need two? Depends
on visitors, the number and the appe-
tite. Can we escape the past? The pre-
sent? No. The future? If we choose to.
The bag of recycle left sitting on the
porch; the shower nozzle rusted shut;
the frayed selvage; the lock without
a key; the missing money. The sound
waves of an unfinished thing may
accompany the soul in its final and
eternal journey outward, outward.
