From Falling Into The Ocean...

It’s just that easy to let go, you wonder, of home or homeland, of tribe or country

drift on the water between there and here and not look        empty the sand that once

ran through your fingers, gripped and released.

You’re not sure half the time where you are--

home is different from homeland. One you hold and one slips away or burns in the atmospheres, abandoned. Pieces fall in unknown territories and are absorbed into the land.
