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.
