oh please, won't you just take me in
i'm weary as i roam
i need a friend to pass the time
a poem without a home

i barely knew my author
he just threw me out to rove
a recipe that he cooked up
then served me from the stove

i've since become a luncheon
for an eager reader's mind
vibrations for the deaf
a patch of braille left for the blind

i wonder what my birth meant
and what landscape i should comb
i need a place to rest
for i'm a poem without a home

perhaps you'd let me greet you
and then share your residence
i'll tell you of your future
while you're in the present tense

or regale you with the past
and thus illuminate your dreams
with sighs of mystic wonder
that come bursting from the seams

but now i sound pretentious
like a frothy sea of foam
perhaps it's just as well
i am a poem without a home
