I am at home everywhere, and nowhere. I am never a stranger and I never quite belong. – Georges Simenon
Fold the map at the middle
and you’ll find
the places she’s lived:
born in Victorville, CA
and then Florida (both coasts)
Ohio is fine if you’ve got family,
but AZ was a little Rough (Rock).
Beatty, NV is a
sweet place to be,
especially if you’re 12 and have a
Pahrump’s about the same,
lame as a high schooler
but in retrospect, a fine place
to spend the last of childhood,
some bartered dreams,
a thousand tears.
Now follow those dusty trails to
Las Vegas, then Henderson, NV.
And that former Air Force Brat,
now how ’bout that?
She’s been settled here 33 years.
