Where Does My Mail Go? | Joyce M. Garcia

I am here

My mail is in Afton . . .
It was a nice ride

My cat is in St. Paul . . . that’s where she got lost

Here, here is in the hospital . . . I think, I’m in Anoka

It’s better than a shelter . . .
The hospital I mean

The problem is—I can’t get out
I’ve nowhere to go

Tuesday, Tuesday will be good

My case manager will take
me to see an apartment

He can only go to one place

No matter what it’s like—I’ll say yes

Oh, did I tell you— my truck is at Mary Beth’s

Where does my mail go?
