My stoop
a semi-secluded place
just outside my back door.
Here is where you should check
when I don't answer my front door.
It's where I go to escape from the general public
and all forms of electronic noise.

Here is where I go to get away
talk softly so my neighbors can't hear me
smoke some and think crazy things
some of the time.

You have to drive North through the alley
or walk around the corner to see me.
otherwise when I stay perfectly still
you're likely to just pass me by.

Here is where I go to get away
talk softly so my neighbors can't hear me
smoke some and think crazy things
most of the time.

Dolly and Gracie patrol my yard
chasing birds and squirrels away
yet leary of those five feral cats
my neighbor feeds
to keep the snake and rat populations down.

Here is where I go to get away
talk softly so my neighbors can't hear me
smoke some and think crazy things
all of the time.
