Back East

Most homes

Are adopted homes,

Or adoptive homes.

We didn't start out there,

But when we arrived a home was made;

One took on the other,

 by chance or need,

 accident or intent.


My home and I,

Your home and you.

Most other humans,

All their places.


When I was small,

I lived in the Westernmost West,

The Golden Gate,

To the Evergreen State,

The County Seat of Klickitat County.


I called this other place

  "Back East"

Until I came back.


Now I call it Home.
