which I’m beginning to think

walking where I used to live

I lived over there with xx the one who…

that block I lived with her did the bad thing

here’s the place me & the boys

who too now live elsewhere used to hang out

turned into a bijou restau’ now

that’s the Chinese place would feed us right


the list goes on places shops turned into thrifts

tattoo parlours nail bars pop up bars

all open for a a week two then gone

& there are streets now shops all boarded

where once were the mom & pops

the weekend before pay day

I could kite a cheque knowing

they’d not put it in the bank ‘til the 1’st of the month

& I never see a face I used to know

which I’m beginning to think

is a good thing
