temporary stationary

thank you for pulling me away
from homes that did not care for me
then pushing me toward the familial warmth that never left

thank you for keeping a globe in your living room
as a subtle reminder
that you travel a boundless, divergent path

thank you thank you thank you
for keeping me up past 3 am
for pulling apart these temporal lobes
for whisking memory past frothy dream
into the panna cotta present, a savored sweet

thank you for the moment
thank you for consistency
thank you for staying private
so you could win in secrecy
