as much as I want to come home

as much as I want to come home

there is trepidation

home is where I bear witness to our shifting

our disassembly and reconstruction

our growing pains

we are building something grand

that could be grand

right now though

there are egg shells all over

with no sign of omelets

right now though

home can smother and cage

where is my space

there is so much of it out here

out where I am reminded how big the world is

reminded how small I am

how small

and how much space I need for growing

for spreading

for trying me out

it’s easy to get perspective from far away

and I’ll try to bring her home

I promise

I’m trying
