As restless as I am
I resist change
I want the exact cream in my coffee
The familiar scarf around my throat.
I want my husband to love me like
He did forty years ago.
We can go on safari with trunks of clothing
Tea sets from home
Live under a cabana in the jungle
Sit drinking java
Surrounded by elephants and stilt birds
Singing for us
Because I am
An explorer who has carried my world
And my husband
On my back.
