Home Sweet Home Again

Project Description

Home | Naomi Cohn

We circle three times
in the grass, lay down,
and call it home.

We nail images to the wall,
We upholster and paint
burn scented candles
and call it home.

We crouch in the long grass,
freeze, listen to the pounding
of our rabbit heart.
If the dog passes by,
we call this bowl
of flattened stalks home.

We pull feathers
from our breasts,
making ourselves naked
to the wind. We line
a frail cup of dead twigs,
and call it home.

We snuggle
into the lap of chaos
and call it home.
