home is where the wine is
where your key fits and so do your comfiest pants
bubbles in glasses and bubbles in baths
your favourite record already under the cover

you can park your car and do your homework anywhere
drop your bra or your dacks in any damp change room
rack your knife and fork at Nandos and mop your plate with your roll

honey, home is giant jenga with your bodies and your blocks
fairy lights and cat fur and french toast toasties –
the place you put your book down when you’re done.
