thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

I close my eyes
as I do for so many poems
and my mind turns sideways
and slips in between among the atoms that make it up.

In worlds where atoms combine in unknown shapes and planes,
my house is a sweep of dark wood and tall columns,
an asylum of sterile white concrete walls,
a waft of sultry air from the portico,
the smell of curry and jasmine,

is everything exotic and foreign
is everything it now is not

I become aware that these are always there,
of the fine laminated edges
between this is and other ises

and I realize I am thinking

that if only I could bring you with me
if only I knew you were somewhere inside
any of them would be home.
