Travel is ever hopeful

visiting the unknown

disliking the discomfort

the inevitable delays

frustrations of language

& hard as we might try

to surrender to the strange

we tend to create

the customary along the way

oh that looks like

this reminds me of

those houses are similar

to those in that place

where was it now?

& on we go

slotting the new

exotic places events

into familiar holes

fast tracking the fresh into familiar

so as not to scare ourselves

too much & to

make the world easier to digest
