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

and….

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
