a poem to departure

lately i have been finding myself gripping on doorknobs

as if they were hands

clasping on ever so tightly to the stillness and consistency as i

transcend in between a moment of hesitation and assemblies of

brief holy gatherings in my lungs

unmolding my soles from familiar floors

it is a privilege to

notice that i am here and of places

to where i should be
