Home is Where…?

Today is prompt response day:

Home Turf – Name five things in your house that make it a home.”

Considering the fact that I just recently moved out for the first time, this is incredibly relevant. So here’s a “double poem” – a mishmash of old ideas coupled with a new layout:

Home is Where…?

I.
“Home is where the heart is,”
says the head
“Me?”
says heart –
“Yes, you,”
says the head

II.
“But home is where the food is,”
says the tongue
“But I don’t taste,”
says heart –
“The food,”
says the tongue

III.
“Home is where we sleep,”
say the bones
“Sleep?”
says heart –
“I know no sleep,”
it sighs.

IV.
“Home is not a place,”
says the nose
“But you smell it
in your head.”
“My head?”
asks heart

V.
“Home is where….”
the head, it stops
“Where?”
says heart
“Where we are.”
“Where we are.”
