it’s your stuff 

choking the walkways

More sitting  places than necessary

Too few empty places beckon 

Recognition things from where 

knowledge of when that matters

Pictures that exist on walls defying mind

Memories creeping down halls

Plants oblivious growing on tables

the familiar shadow of a corner

A home has walls to hold things in

Collections of memories are bricks

Stronger than concrete

They define home
