follow the yellow brick

rode
our way south hard and fast
and furious as all
………….{get out},
watched the sun dip low and
slow like a lemon
…….dum-dum
lollipop song.

clicked our heels
and kicked ’em up,
headed for AnywhereButHere
and OverThere and
someplace we might (un)square
our shoulders and shed
our tired skins.

it took all the last
……..{heart, brains, courage}
….gas
we’ve got,
but we spent it well
and let our souls
go rogue
just romp
and roam,

only to find
there’s no place
………………like
………………home.

..
in april, we poem. wherever we are.
