The house on Mill Street

with my own pink room.
Roseville apartments

with blocks in the vents.
Mom’s boyfriend’s, parents house

with the lonely basement as my room.
A Friend’s apartment

with my coat as my pillow.
The street

with nowhere to sleep.
A shelter for women and children

with labeled food that’s not mine.
Aunt Diane’s house

with them only a week.
Mom’s boyfriend’s, parents house

with them again.
Grama’s house

with the label as my own.
