I lay myself down in between you
You do not smell like home
Like they said you would.
You smell like old pine trees and the mud they root themselves in,
And I inhale again.
I begin to weep and you ask me why;
“You smell like land unconquered,” I say.
“You smell like a dream.”
these words by Nahomi Amberber were inspired by the work of Selina Vesely
