He asked ‘tell me about yourself’
and she wondered if she should tell him
that she fled her home
that strange men have made her body their home
that she walked on water to find a new home
that she grew another tongue to call it home
that she shrunk and shape shifted to feel like home
and yet after all that she still felt alone.
She wanted to ask, if he could be her next home.
