Quick one

I'm writing a good bit; it's getting here that's the problem. Here's one as a sort of token.

Traveler’s Checklist

Tight rolls of stores in the satchel,
chosen for light. Dark covers
to ward against dirt and wear,
all the living parts scrubbed and draped.
Soft support for making tracks.
Loose bands to bind. Clean lenses,
clear eyes, uptilted chin
to kiss the new day.
