In Lockdown (2006)

By James Moats in Tucson, AZ

confusion
tied by the tail to two cities
chicago, downtown, is a whole in the ground
and at home, there's nothing quite like it

space for practice
space for rent
a place to place this monkey
doesn't exist yet

get off my back
the weight is making me hunch
and i've got a hunch
to shake it may require breaking it

i felt at home
last time i was at home
i felt alive
last time i told this same lie

i feel saved
for a moment anyway
i feel ashamed
to have slept it all away

it's clear
that it's beautiful here
it's clear
that i need to come back soon
