Home

home was

milk kisses
nine days late
clear plastic
soft blanket

blue doorway
hall whispers
glue scissors
red mittens

home was

brown cliff-face
white kitchen
close quarrel
tears drying

school blazer
soft Nirvana
clock chiming
love letter

home was

cold seminar
yellow capsule
black coffee
blood blister

thatched ceiling
bare rafters
rat scratching
cat calling

home is

wild rumpus
new word sound
rough tumble
blonde bearhug

stained teacup
coiled incense
ring promise
red crayola

home is

soft peashoot
stitched nametag
her pillow
coarse linen

wash dishes
watch sunrise
let rain fall
right here
