There are a thousand roads and each one takes me home,
a thousand rivers flowing and each one is you.
A thousand leaves falling and every one’s an autumn,
the same tune’s playing on a thousand screens of blue.
The roads are made of smoke, the rivers made of distance
and home’s just exposed bricks in an ancient ruin,
a thousand ways to measure, and all beyond fathoms
- beneath bricks and rivers old history’s brewing.
There’s a huge swarm of wings and each one’s a prayer
and every tree is a roof, every stone’s a shelter.
Each swoop is auspicious, every turn, every tier,
and each cloud overhead is shaped as the delta.
I’m home on each road, beneath every stone and tree
wherever the road winds, wherever the stones may be.
