All the Rest

Home

I’d like to fill you up 

with color —

all your arches 

your windows

tiles

each color plucked

with a specific purpose 

to mold a place

into being more 

than four walls 

I thought I knew

what home looked like

I thought it was you,

but the drumbeat 

inside my chest

dictates all the rest.
