places

Places i’ve lived

I can’t number them now

addresses

gone from memory

places I put my stuff

some for days

weeks

now & then

for years

in all of these

there weren’t many

I could call home

& when you call

try to talk to me

pull me to places

you believe I belong

I can’t tell you

the person you speak of

sure as hell ain’t me

these places kept

the rain off

sometimes the cold

but the hurt you put in me

shows no sign of getting old

so forgive me

if I keep the call short

but there’s places

I need to be

more writing

on tattered bits of paper

hold the comfort

the sun is shining

somewhere else

than where you are

to me
