The First Day

Day one - moving:

The systematic arranging of objects in an attempt to create a sense of familiarity,

The sofa here - no there. Favorite chair facing window as before,

But still...something missing.

Day one - sonic assault, auditory attack, verbal battering,

Screaming and cursing, face livid, looking so frail.

First day here, and already he's started,

Malevolent rage bouncing off walls,

Filling the air, finding every room.

There it is.

Only day one and it already feels like home.
