This Unnamed

I would rather be here than
In a story, rather be
Here than in a dream. I want

These phrases to take my hand
Like children who want to show
A new place they’ve discovered

I never knew existed,
Never imagined seeing.
I want to recognize it,

Not for what it is (I can’t),
But for the fact it’s neither
Fiction nor a place I’ve been.

I will be its alien,
And I will be contented
Names brought me to this, unnamed.
