  • Being home
    like being caught
    in the middle
    of your life

    A little bit
    inside out
    I remember
    the way the city
    wrote me
    the people
    shaped me
    and the ocean
    drank me
    with the salt

    I miss my
    friends that are
    still here
    and I miss
    my mum
    beside me
    but mostly
    I miss the
    way the
    hills roll
    my heart
    their belly
    so that the
    roots are my legs
    and the branches
    reaching for the sky
