9. Into a storage locker

9. Into a storage locker

Into a storage locker went everything we own 
Except for the boom box that we handcuff 
... to the bench

Sleeping on the Ave with the traffic a constant drone 
Hanging onto each other for dear life 
... in a clench

Calling home with life altering news on a pay phone 
Pregnant and street like stopping a motor 
... with a wrench
