oakland, 11

five years,
i’ve said,
again and again

five years,
i’ll be here
intentionally

not with one eye
always searching
out escape

five years,
i’ll be here
integrating

as with most
declarative
statements
i’ve made
over the last
five years

my heart
my actions
may prove
the opposite.

my mouth said
i would leave
LA but my heart
always stayed

my mouth says
stay in Oakland
but my heart
wanders
