sometimes it is like travelling

on a penrose staircase.

To be honest, it is so

every time.

~

I have been here innumerably so –

sometimes naked, sometimes in torn clothes

and sometimes in stolen ones,

but each time it has been the same.

~

progress is an illusion,

a whip that keeps me moving

un-mindful of where –

until i reach back here again.

~

I daresay it feels like home

but it does –

unwanted, unsafe, unloved, devoid

of warmth and nudity that a home entails.

~

for forever too, I will return

here, again and again

and it will be the same

tear and the same reason.

~

but, why must I?

because

I

can.
