"And where can I go wandering?"
from Emily Wilson's translation of Homer's Odyssey
Come wander with me, oh Reader, and
I will take you through the winding streets
of my own mind where I promise
you'll meet the people who live there,
leaning inside doorframes and hanging
over balconies strewn with flowers,
telling each other stories as another day
rises pink and orange on the back of the sun.
