Homecoming

Wholeheartedly lived against death

till something unexpected mirrors you

for instance in a poem, so

 

fragile that you never thought

that it existed

That wrings itself

 

through all your pores, rises

from the paper and

looks at you like a doe

 

That is a homecoming:

to see who you are

in this moment
