i wasn't expecting you

you
you homesickness you
not for here
in my home of homes pullman
rather?
for papua new guinea
i miss
morning coffee
afternoon silences
evening journals
the smiles
the smells
sweet potatoes
biliums
dirt
sweat
no power
the sun
the water
the stars
the people

& SPAIN?!?
i miss SPAIN?!?
i miss
hot hot heat
palm trees
flamenco
sevillanas
cafe con leche
sidewalk cafes
corner bars
the cathedral
cobbled streets
my senoras cooking
the essence, flavour, life of Spain
i miss it

how do i cope?
sipping my mojito
wishing i were anywhere but here
aching to satisfy my wandering soul
i miss meg & angiers
i see them soon

yet oddly, all i want now
is papua new guinea with a side of spain
