remind yourself of what homes are true homes
homes that do not deny
less brazen than you usually force
yourself to be
but alert to the new expressions they drag from behind them
new postures new shadows
do they still have that look that fills their face?
when they love something?
has it dulled?
do bared teeth come out of their smiles or do their smiles come out of bared teeth?
is everything of consequence to them now?
as it is for you?
are you sure?
