I am home

I am here
I am home
I say to the four walls
And
listen to the echo
Bouncing
around
the
rooms
I am here
I say
Once again
But they are all gone
Shadows and afternoon sunlight
An unmade bed
A dirty sock
And a small clutter of dirty dishes
Wishes
They were washed
I take a teacup from the shelf
Talk to myself as the kettle boils
I say
I'm here
I'm home
And it's enough
