Leaving Nowhere for Anywhere

Someone once asked me where I am from. Nowhere I said

Three-room broken-down house
Mother an earthbound angel
of the morning light
Stepfather, a raging,
drunken demon
singed by the eternal fires
Cheap bars
on every corner
Seven day
a week homes
for the old,
the pathetic,
the lost,
ones with no choice
but to drink…
pour it down
until the pain is numbed
