On my bike with Dad behind me, holding on as i start riding.
He lets go and i keep pedalling
away from thirty-one Glenellen Drive.
In my snowsuit, i begin to make a snowman,
he melts into swimming pool and watermelon
summer at thirty-one Glenellen Drive.
Brother Rick, one floor below me, sings along to David Bowie.
Brother Ron drives up in a custom, souped-up, rumbling, fire-red Mustang. Neighbourhood kids press their faces up to windows in the basement when his rock group called The Villains plays at thirty-one Glenellen Drive.
Overcome on one holiday Mum breaks down and then walks away. Dad goes out and brings her in and no one mentions it again.
A little poodle rolls in leaves. Grama sings Bringing In The Sheaves. The oven's on with pot roast smelling good at thirty-one Glenellen Drive.
On my swing and Mum is pushing. Raiding the raspberry bush
when life is new and all is well. i'm safe at thirty-one Glenellen.
Drive down Bunting. Turn on Gormley. Pass Dunraven and Hawthorne. See a glassed-in porch and blue Impala. You're at thirty-one Glenellen Drive.
The bear is sleeping in his den. He's on the midnight shift again and Mum has got a mean migraine. Unless you want to start a riot keep the noise down and be quiet. Shhhh!
