Songs of Home (Poem)

DSC_0324We’ll build a house with treasure
stashed under the floorboards
and a piano in the living room.

So if it all falls down one day,
through the tears
our rubble will sparkle, and the keys,
broken teeth in our crying mouths
will be gems shining while the dust drops,
and we’ll remember the songs of the first home,
to sing while we build the second.
