Homesick

Today as I walked out through the door,
The city ebbed away from me
And my feet yearned for home.
So while the train snaked its way,
A part of me broke free from myself,
Swam back home, kicked off its shoes,
And settled itself in a corner,
Safe in the warmth of my mother’s arms.

At around the same time the train moved,
And I found myself in another city.
