thinking this was how

while people called me wild

sure I had no mother

or father talking to me

was living out in the world

all on my lonesome for a fair while

could go out come in when I wanted

my nights became stayed in

under tiles

& when that fell apart

the snow cleared

I saw the world as new

but this time I knew
