Read Poem: HOMECOMING by V Frag

With power out and lights off I return to make a home.

Remember how that smells?

Hair, skin, fresh sea air – transform me.

Words stuck in my throat choke me.

Nothing comes up – nothing goes down.

Stagnant now.

Through the window I see a stranger crowned in my home, a saviour.

An imposter at home,

an imposter who laughs,

an imposter who lives. As me. But not the same.

Lights out – but this time the hand at the switch is mine.
