searching for home

she is home
between the houses
on her street

she is home
seeking long butts
on discarded cigarettes

and home
when she smokes one
with her feet up
outside on the rotunda chair
like some lady
in a movie almost
as she exhales

home is snugged
in an armchair in the lounge
legs draped
across the side
while she screenplays
an elaborate plot

for a movie

for a director to read
and say

this is wonderful

this play has the feel
of …

playing in her head
out loud
she can hear the voices
making vows to her

is walking in between the houses
that all face
the street
called home

and she wanders
looking for the feel
of home

she has found
an old stogie

and that’s
