Far Go Well

It wasn't always a bank

It wasn't always beautiful

But before it was

and after it wasn't

It was a place to stay

A place out of the chill of fall

Before the winter rains

across from HEB

where a rack of ribs wore a parka

As de cabasa stuck it's tongue out at me

and dinner was what I could afford

Not what I could steal

In this building now a bank

once a house

then a boarded up hell hole

filled with fear and broken glass

How did I sleep? I ask the rhetorical question

I dressed, went to work, and found

someplace else for us to go

not as dry

not as safe

Not a house or a bank

but more mine
