Hustling and bustling streets
But an eerie, muted-ness

Almost a ghostly presence
But an inner intensity

Sketchy buildings,
Run down apartment complexes,

David, who works at the gas station
And who gives me discounts on slushies

Why do I call this call this place home?

You know everyone,
and nobody at the same time

You feel safe and loved
While feeling vulnerable and hated

There is a special vibe in Detroit
I can’t explain it

But I’m most certain
This is home
