NaPoWriMo Day 22

I'm just under the wire for the 22nd. It's been a looooong day. We're in the process of moving, so everything is incredibly hectic right now.

SoCo Wednesday
It was in Texas that
I discovered my love of Italian sodas
and Oriental medicine
and where I lost what I had
come to find

Having chucked the past
out of the moving van
into the highway
now without record
of life before
and memory too fallible
to serve as a blueprint

I began the reconstruction
eleven months later
I am starting to emerge from a cocoon
shaking, sticky
not sure who
I will be when I finally burst through
this shell

Not sure if I will be recognizable
when I expose myself
to the outside
