Poems of bog, lake and troll: 4

Recap: I’m currently traversing Finland, Sweden and Estonia, writing a poem a day. Blog posts will come after my return.

Writing from: Kemijärvi, Lapland, Finland, where all the pizza comes with ananas (pineapple) and all the swans are five feet tall (according to Bard).
Poem written from: a 14 hour train headed north.


You can come home to a place you’ve never been.

the man who pulled the trigger
that killed the robot’s brain
that he has a home, too. That he
when his heart touches his lovers lips.
