Going Home

That the ocean

is at your doorstep

does not mean its mind

is not far away.


Perhaps the ocean’s thoughts

ruffle the shore

of a land you’ve now forgotten,

a land you once called home.


The ocean wants to carry you home.


And home only pretends

to have forgotten how it cares for you.


That’s why the ocean’s whispers

are so painful.


Let sleep be the boat ferrying you

to where cold chocolate is plentiful

and people speak with the tenderness

of plaintive tunes.


Let your eyes open where you felt

magic still live, on this earth.


You see,

your feet are already there.
