NaPoWriMo #25

In Place

Flight cancelled,
turn around and go back home

with your full-to-the-brim luggage
you thought you were
taking somewhere.

Don't drive home:
run home instead,

run for
Chevron next exit and
population: 99,

the place you wanted to leave.
You know yourself too well,

you don't find trouble, but
trouble finds you.
