Headline Poem 11/15/14 -- When I come home

When I come home 

Will you be waiting for me, remembering I've been good to you,    
    or will you be on the verge of a leave, surprised 
that you've survived, existing through ice that's cracked 
and barrels that exude at the seams
like caves filled with dripping mistakes 
and crystals the size of Everglades?
