#Poetry Wed: “Upon Re-entry” by Arden Levine

“After all that time indoors (the illness, the convalescence)
I couldn’t recall which of the wool hats
cause my forehead to itch. I’d forgotten

that I like to listen to music on headphones
while walking…

when I finally ventured forth into winter, I’d confront
a summer tilting precariously toward fall.”
