New Poem Series Poem #9


when I lived at home with my
mother during grad school we
would drive around sometimes
in the evening to look at houses

I always wanted to go to the bookstore
and couldn't always find someone to go
along with me although sometimes
my mom would or my friend would

for the first half of this time I was
dating a boy who lived across the bay
and for the second half I was single
but somehow it never occurred to me

to go to the bookstore or the movies
or the coffee house or the bar which
were the other places I wanted to go
without anyone else just all by myself
