Cali memories


I am back

As if I never left

Did I even leave?

Or was this all a dream

Of waking up in cold dark

Count the frost on my car

The lake smokes with morning sun

The kitchen is a mess

Of people lining up

Toasting bread

Porridge pouring like rain

Time to go, you say

Get to work

I obey but soon I wouldn’t

I’d stir it up

Make waves in a lake

Create ships with pirates

And drama on the oceanside

I wanted to run

Get in my car and drive

But you made me stay

To cry for an hour straight

Make love all night and day

Kiss you goodbye

Before I drive away
