8210 Elmway Drive

When I belonged to you
and you were tall grass
around a boulder and I
made sewing needles

out of thorns and I was
going to live there near
the downspout and you

were mock orange
blossoms and you
were baby squirrels 
and my mother and

the neighbors’ black cat,
poisoned while running
home to see my mother
