I fall in love with these impermanent places,
For my skittish heart is willing to call a place home
If it has been there for a day—
Eager to find a corner to nestle into,
Burrow into the stale-colored drywall,
And entangle my veins in the electrical wiring;
Pump energy through it,
Become a part of its circulation.
These silent breathing spaces are my lungs
Expanded.
