A History of Houses

February 27, 2010
The house on Mill Street

with my own pink room.
Roseville apartments

with blocks in the vents.
Mom’s boyfriend’s, parents house

with the lonely basement as my room.
A Friend’s apartment

with my coat as my pillow.
The street

with nowhere to sleep.
A shelter for women and children

with labeled food that’s not mine.
Aunt Diane’s house

with them only a week.
Mom’s boyfriend’s, parents house

with them again.
Grama’s house

with the label as my own.
