Temporary

You would hardly have
credited it, actually —
the amount of time
I expended shifting house …
just a temporary move.

Mentally prepared
to shift again in two months,
I’ve unpacked only
what I need right now, leaving
most of my stuff still boxed up.

There’s an extra room,
they tell me, and a garden
where I’ll be going.
It’s been a decade since I’ve
washed soil from under my nails.
