    You can get there from here, though
    there’s no going home.

    Everywhere you go will be somewhere
    you’ve never been. Try this:

    head south on Mississippi 49, one—
    by-one mile markers ticking off

    another minute of your life. Follow this
    to its natural conclusion — dead end

    at the coast, the pier at Gulfport where
    rigging of shrimp boats are loose stitches

    in a sky threatening rain. Cross over
    the man-made beach, 26 miles of sand

    dumped on the mangrove swamp — buried
    terrain of the past. Bring only

    what you must carry — tome of memory,
    its random blank pages. On the dock

    where you board the boat for Ship Island,
    someone will take your picture:

    the photograph — who you were —
    will be waiting when you return.
