A week is all I have left in the Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea.
Everything I do now is shadowed by the notion that it could be my last time.
My last time dodging erratic pedestrians on the Homer Spit;
My last time sweating up East Hill;
My last time pedaling down an abandoned road in search of an unobstructed view of the 11 p.m. sunset;
My last small town surprise - an overturned Subaru laid to final rest beside the silent shadow of Mt. Redoubt.
I know it's not the last. I know it's not yet over.
But I already miss it.
