I belong here, in this city—
this starred place on the map
where the Labrador gets skunked
and the doe skirts the edge of the highway
and the hawk lands on a nest of wires.
Where the airplanes circle like falcons
and the streetlights create the heavens.
Where everything is common and known
except the wildness in my heart.

yellow mellowed Post-it note
adhesive gone
thumbtacked,
suspended
behind doctor cards,
school dates, ads,

scribbled years ago:
“love is a decision”
