I believe living on the land can take endless forms—save for living in a space station or on a boat.

The water is a murky blue, and each time our canoe propels further, the rippling trail behind me delicately braids the water and then falls loose, like when I take out the braid in my own hair.

She is my backyard. She hopes I will come back and fix her scars, recreate her beauty, or simply stop by and say hello . . . but it’s been a while since I was back there.

I sit on my railing staring at the setting sun. The snow on the tips of the mountains glistens. The street is quiet. The fragrance of different dinners mixes in the crisp fall air. The dew starts to gather on the tips of the grass. A moving van to my left is open with all our possessions in boxes.
