Home

鈥楬ome is where the heart is鈥, they say.聽

I wonder if they know that

Home is isn鈥檛 something defined by four walls,

Or even the people walking the messy halls聽

Of your memory and soul.

Home is a feeling, a sensation,

A grenade in your ribcage.

And they say all roads lead to Rome, but I say all roads lead to home

Because I have so many countryside cottages and uptown villas and seaside condos

That I don鈥檛 think I can count them anymore.

I find home 聽that old-book smell and a childhood favourite鈥檚 stained yellow pages,

In shattered glass beads and broken necklaces;

In a yellow-faced, blue-paged notebook I turned into my poetry book聽

Way back in seventh grade,

In the flowing wet ink and temporary word tattoos;

In summer nothing-to-do attitudes with their shut curtains and sunlit bedrooms,

In the middle of God鈥檚-oven afternoons;

In air-conditioner scent and feeling the wind聽

On my shivering skin;

In my mother鈥檚 arms and cocoa-powder evenings

Spent in the kitchen baking Friday cakes;

In the sky, pretending to be squid-ink when it鈥檚 really a dark blue string of poetry,

In the stars that I want to be: Beacon to lost souls.

Home is where the heart is,

And if that鈥檚 true, then my heart must be a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle.

So baby break my heart the good way;

Take a shard from my beautifully shattered cage-bird glass heart聽

And embed it into your bones.

I want you to be

Another place my liquid-fire soul finds home.
