The Author Finds a Home

Andrew R. Crow
I dreamed
I stood
On American Canyon Blvd
In the old buried section
Of Seattle
And as I read my fears
And observations aloud
A bizarre and lovely family
Took me in
And fed me clam chowder and chilli
Nurtured my delusions of grandeur
And when I was ready
They sent me on my way
With a picture postcard
In my back pocket
