My Hour 6 poem. Back on track.
This is my apartment
my refrigerator is either freezing cold
or room temperature
This is my desk
where my computer is
I prepare to do everything here
This is my sofa—it’s orange!
I do everything here
This is my car
the CD player is broken
but I can still listen to cassettes
This is the bookstore
I come here to buy books, write
and get away from my apartment
This is the grocery store
some people know me by name
some people know me by what I buy
This is the gas station
nobody knows me here
I use gift cards so I don’t have to pay so much
This is the parking lot
José, the apartment manager, passes by:
“Have a great day!”
This is my apartment…
