I’ve Been Away For So Long, I’ve Lost My Taste For Home

by Po, Editor-in-Chief

And you tremble and you stumble
And you scrape up your palms
I can’t stay here to hold your hand
I’ve been away for so long
I’ve lost my taste for home
And that’s a dirty, fallow feeling
To be the dangling ceiling
From when the roof came crashing down…

-Neko Case, “The Next Time You Say Forever,” Middle Cyclone, 2009
