At nineteen,
  I wanted to live in Colorado

Till that first weekend I spent
  in Cheyenne

At twenty-five
  I wanted to live in Montana

Leaving Yellowstone,
  as Glacier took my hand

At thirty,
  I wanted to live in Alaska

Within Denali,
  where the Kodiaks roam

But as the years have progressed,
  I discovered

All I ever wanted to be
 —was home

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2018)
