Listen

Children’s laughter
Arguments with your lover
Banter at the market downstairs
Hum of the washing machine

Look

Grime on the oven
Apples on the bench
Swirls on the ceiling
Freshly washed tiles

Cherish

A long hug
Drawings on the fridge
Anniversaries, birthdays
Reconciliation

Know

The place as told by Google Maps
Where you keep your journals
The pin to disarm the alarm system
Your real self

Escape

Doors
Windows
The internet
Nosy neighbours

Home

The place we love and argue and hide and sleep in
The place we know so well and yet not at all
The place we invite people we like, to visit
The place we hide from people we like

Always, the place we hope to find and keep.
