The slow reentry

Our cruise vacation in May 2014 from Boston to Quebec City (or rather, the return home from our vacation) spawned this tanka:

the slow reentry
after a week's vacation
travel clothes
still neatly folded
inside our suitcases

  1. Could have been my suitcase. I always pack more than I use.

  2. I like how this captures the feeling of dislocation one experiences on reentry into the 'real' world after being 'away.'

  3. Unpacking those suitcases is hard ... the act: the final acknowledgment that the vacation is truly at an end, and it's back to the old grind.

  4. Thanks, you all. Yeah, what a shock to have to go back to the grind!
