homestead (n).


The two of us are a place that
we stumbled into, a clearing in
a strange country, with this
language we didn’t know how
to speak to each other, and these
thoughts and feelings that
are made out of further borders
and outstretched coastlines
than we had ever seen.

The two of us are a place that
was founded on a dream
of two travelers who became
pioneers who became
patrons of this land and country
they built together.
