Now Playing Tracks

homesick for you

while we are in different places
i will miss the spaces
between my walls and my doors
the arms of yours
that swing open to let me in

the tradewinds of your breathing
through the air ducts of your lungs

valley crevices curving
through your forehead
the steeply angled cliffs
of your
collarbones and hips

night sprinkler tired tears that drip down those
cheekbones,
watchful sky colored night-light lullabye eyes
that turn off when i fall asleep

i miss the perfect temperature
i can always be sure
you will keep me warm

i miss home
i miss the sound and smell and feel of it
the colors and the textures
the flavor of the air
from inside your mouth
i can’t settle down
i am restless and waiting
until i get there

i will

balance steady on the hard slopes of your shoulders
and watch the doors swing open and pull me in
i’ll lean against the walls
sink into my home
again
throw off all the baggage i carried
the nightlights bright to light my way
they’ll close as soon as i’m settled in
the warmth
and music
the sounds
of pipes
living
i’ll lay my head
on the pillow of your neck
which is perfectly shaped for me
and my neighbor your heart
will drum his steady lullabye
the smell of home
whispering around me
no place i’d rather be.

Happy Birthday, Wyoming! 
On this day in history, Wyoming became the 44th state in 1890. The Bureau of Land Management administers more than 17.5 million acres of public lands and 40.7 million acres of federal mineral estate in Wyoming.
The state’s rugged and historic lands are rich in legend of outlaw activity in the late 1800s, most notably Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch Gang. BLM Wyoming manages the Middle Fork, Hole in the Wall and other infamous western sites as well as the longest and most intact segments of the National Historic Trails System which includes 1400 miles of the Oregon, Mormon Pioneer, California, Pony Express and Nez Perce trails
The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Wyoming is a cooperative partnership between BLM, the National Historic Trails Center Foundation and the City of Casper. The Trails Center interprets the significant role of the area’s historic trails in the history of the United States, and seeks to promote public understanding of both America’s western Native cultures and historic westward expansion while highlighting BLM’s role as active stewards of public lands.
