Military planes in the sky in Los Angeles on September 16th, at 12:11 p.m.

Did I ever leave home?

Yes, 

but this city is a mirror of what I left.

Except, 

I don’t speak the same language anymore/but at the same time I speak the very same language/

it’s laughter.

I don’t feel like my traumas have animated my life/ 

I don’t even like to call them traumas

I prefer calling them, ‘stolen property’

and I’m capable

of stealing it back/
