After Class

‘Freeway Home’ by Penelope Walker 2018.

I ghost through silent corridors weightless,

lifted by the helium of poetry and laughter.

Doors slide and cool autumn shivers my skin.

The departing sun steals the palette of this place

to paint the dawn on the far side of the world;

settling grey light wraps me in softness.

The freeway joins two halves of me

with a city and an estuary between.

On a river of carmine gliding North

in calm serenity I metamorphose;

the singular becomes a part, donning

a regrown chrysalis.
