In the Smallness

Home is where the heart is
home is what it carries
all the water and the
sand all the
pine and grassy land
all the planting
all the tears, home
is where it was
that still lives in
mime  and pictures
home is where we
were when we
were kids
home still lives
home still lives though
you can't touch it
or sit in it
or see it raised
in 3D colour all
image: home
a far mirage
a miniature place
its smallnesses
the line in the palm
the line in the palm.
