A flicker

A hometown is as untouchable

As a poet searching for a muse

You may look deep, high, low

But even so

You will never quite see how

It ticks, chimes, goes

As sturdy and fleeting as a clock

You can no sooner nail down time

Than a smile or laugh

They are ungraspable

Though solid and named

A place only you can distinguish

A place called home
