Novel poetry prompt

Finally getting around to posting the piece I wrote for read.write.poem this week!!! I had to go thru books I own and use the last words in them in a poem. Thw chosen words are the first words in each line…

Pieces of trash drift across your
choice of homeland. Here, I can’t find
peace. I’m constantly shifting; your
dedication is in question as crowds
clap for your inauguration in the place you
know only. Each year, it’s new, each year
rotation brings different trees, seasons. Only
owls know what it is you’ve
paid to have it so. To make your
walk always towards someone new.
