New

Hanging in the ether of expectancy
searching for a metaphor
to describe the
anticipation
eagerness to begin
the disorienting roil of a new environment
a new state
a new school
where every acronym
is off by one letter

My faith is buoyed by
the kindness of
those who will be friends
when months have scrubbed the word
“new”
from my title

and a teacher
or parent
or student
walking into my office
doesn’t look around and notice
the differences
but sees in me
and the pictures on my walls
the bookshelves
the plants
the familiar
expected

fish in water
what metaphor you will

And expectancy is replaced
by the feeling of home.
