after Qayyum’s You Know Home Always Waits For You

but do not misplace yourself,

 

it is easy to want to make a home

out of something good,

it is not always easy to recognize that

something good might not be

something that lasts

 

you move away sometimes,

you leave a place of comfort

into a jarringly unfamiliar neighbourhood

& it is okay to want to cry,

to want to go back into a home

that belongs to someone else now

 

but look, unpack your boxes

plug in the bedside lamp

 

home is wherever you choose

to put yourself down,

even if it is miles and miles away

from the people you love

 

and then home waits for you again

to return after a long day

& find shelter in it

here to serve some passive aggressive poems
