you stick drawing-pins on world maps

connecting them with string

to represent the different routes you've taken.

you wallpaper your small one-bedroomed flat

with postcards and photographs from far-off lands

where you felt free and happy without a care in the world.

you spend your days circling articles in travel magazines

and throwing darts at the map on your wall —

wherever it lands will be your next destination.

you live out of a suitcase, because the truth is

the world is your home

and you can't stay in one place for too long.
