    crossing borders: california


    oregon with its
    familial bones is
    foreign ground -
    a land to pass through
    to the comfort of my
    memories of youth

    having visited
    leaving nevada for
    home in california
    is like giving one athirst
    a spring
    in which to wash

    arizona has no
    memories for me
    though she of me
    to me just a land
    too far; too removed
    from the sea

    I lack the desire to
    leave for the née
    aztec nation - a land too
    in love with itself
    to love its people

    leaving california is
    like love unrequited -
    like being smothered
    by a surrealistic pillow

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Alienating Borders

    The boundary is the part that’s strange,
    More different than sides.
    A river, mountain, moat or wall
    May halt the movements of us all
    To keep us occupied.

    We're both of this land.
    I was dispossessed and need a home.
    You too were here since dot
    And now are dispossessed.

    Even if I gave my hand across the line
    How could you trust, and take it?

    Just realised I never set a deadline for this contest so lets give it until midnight on Sat 23rd of this month. (BST) Plenty of time for those of you still thinking about it to join in.
