My Home


my home,

my home is not a castle

It's a cage


My home is not a bond

but an outcast


My house has no fence

It has barriers and prohibitions


My house has nothing else to give

but love.


Delusion Of HOME




Our oppositions are petrified

They have become tombs

with the pictures and names of beloved parents


I recall in court our common past

I'm erasing the future

You were neither at the memorial,

nor were you at the dance

My brother





Acceptance of inheritance

Our oppositions

write lawyers

Adding markers and remarks

that look very much like zeros

behind the value

of our HOME

and our ruined heritage
