home away from

My feet took

me home

before I realized it was

no longer home.

The doors that once welcomed

stood ajar


My childhood propped

against the railing, spokes

bent and rusted.

My aspirations marked

with notches on the door jamb.

We age the same, and now

we see the same –

yet to find our home

away from
