Home

The city below us
Cloudy sky above
The scent of your sweat
The night air
And your mum’s detergent
Surrounding us

A flash in the distance
Fireworks
City of magic
City of fire

Pushing the beds together
Not quite one bed
But close enough to spoon
To clasp hands across the chasm
‘You’re so far away’
I whisper
So you climb into my twin bed
And hold me tight
Hipbones sharp against my thighs
And finally I drift off

A toast to the couple
In our wedding finery
I sway in your arms and watch them dance
Countless new faces
My world gone bigger
Yet also smaller
I watch the palm trees outside
A gentle breeze, cooling after the press
Of the dance hall

A dusty attic, dusty books
The room of your youth, high in the hills
The stories I’ve heard come to life
In the sights and sounds of this city
A world of its own
Captured in your shining eyes
As you glance at me
And I see the boy you were once
Under the man you are now

I rest my head against your chest
Two thousand miles away from my house
Yet I am home
