Home: a chosen skin
We don’t wear
But live heedless in
Can’t share
Exchange or shuck
Bequeathe to kin

A made luck
All we’ve ever seen
Done, been

Fortress, stage
Tightrope over rage
Loss, sin
Sickness, age

Diary on and in
Shelf, rack, bin
Wall, drawer
Crack and stain

Platinum or
Where we end
Wait, begin
