The underrated pleasure of staying home

It seems that wanting to travel
is part of being a good person
or at least an interesting one
like wanting to learn a second language
support microcredit
cook from scratch.

But I can no longer ignite
the desire to take all those buses
and pick a new place to eat
every day.

And yet it is not a tame feeling
this hankering for home
it has its own fervor
for the shorthand of relationships
worn smooth as stone
and for the way the same two trees
wave hello to me at my window
every morning
like a mother to her child

wake up
I am here
all is safe
and good.
