Backs of Houses

something about

the backs of houses

not backyards


as much as

the area right behind

the house


where people often throw

their shit, store it

forget it


makeshift sculpture

gardens

all the crap


you need to make a

life

but then i guess you don't need to make it


anymore

you just need a place

for it to be out of your sight


like today a whole

damn sectional

sofa


out there

in the sun

and a busted bookshelf


toys

carpet rolls

bbq grills upside down


so on

so forth and i thought

about


e.t.

that machine he built to

phone home


out of

a nasty umbrella

an old record player


a speak n spell

a coathanger

all that shit emanating


that one message

across

galaxies


about going

home

and even how when


you're home

you are always

trying to go


somewhere else
