I was born North
in any country North
193 when I feel acknowledged
196 when I think I am important.
But in truth we are 200 and more
strong, and fierce, and fighting for that seat in New York.
My skin has grown pale - the sun has put on her shy dress
In the heat of Mexico's desert just minutes from the border
eternal freedom - super size Coca Cola - I am North
I have lived you many times, in many places, it's North that's home to me.
The taste of sweeter sounds so different from the south
the needle draws and shows we're North
almost centered - but no cigars.
Exclaiming clarity - we're here! They're there - and there is Mars
in repetition of numbers, meridians, latitudes - check my coordinates
drawn on my heart, beneath the chest
53.4667°North, 2.2333° West
you see, they say that North it is where I roam
but in truth I am just simply home.
