headed home

i step out, Midwest December
beneath the falling snow
to walk down Lee Hill Boulevard
toward the place that holds my treasure
but the silence there is suffocating
even my breath begins too loud
so i must not stay for too long
before lifelines all turn flat, enjoyment
look up online beforehand
so i can leave in a hurry
with a book or two clasped in my hand
i am already headed home
