Domestic travel

if the past was a foreign country
i’d never again try to justify
my lack of a passport

if the past was a foreign country
i’d never be able to justify
the expense of a trip

if the past was a foreign country
it could be night here and day there
i could keep the past in my nightmares

but the past is not a foreign country
it’s right here
i take it with me everywhere
hoping my luggage gets lost
