This Is Where

this is where you

disappear

that's what this place


says

while forming

that polarioid


in your skull

the faded one

in the junk drawer


you turn left

and it's right smack dab

in front of you


no more houses

and no outlet either

they fly little fake airplanes


here sometimes

a place for litter

to blow by


other times

nothing but good old-fashioned

disappearances


he disappears

she disappears

it disappears


always something

going

away


and up the sidewalk

houses

people might be living in


who knows?

and by the mailbox

next to a trashcan


a busted artificial

xmas tree

shoved into a lavender


plastic laundry-basket

so evergreen

it is navy blue


and maybe a dukes

of hazard action-figure

in there too


some nasty old washrags

an old tylenol bottle

whispering


remember when

scott baio

was on the cover of people magazine?


in the end

ghosts build their own

nests


and lives figure things out

once they stop

being lived


this is where

you are now

walking around


kind of okay

a little sweaty but

okay


this is where you live
