Look at the homes that we have built for ourselves

look at the homes that we have built for ourselves

look at them dismantling, undressing
before their foundation days
look at them in ruins already
already
before mortar or walls
or windows or corridors
morning light white curtains
tea spills dirty shoes
look at them
look at us
without homes
renting homes
packing
and unpacking
not enough closet space
not enough breathing area
this home and that
and none at all
look at your homes
the ones with eyes, deep and empty
the ones with hands, always receiving
the ones that they built for you
he she they
count their names on the windows
forget the ones you made into homes
vast areas of land cannot be found
homes :
there is no home
other than the one you were born into.
