That a palindrome.
I have no home.

I am
taco cat,
a Toyota.

I am an explosion
in the sky,
a rolling black out.

I am dunce caps
and graduation caps.
I’m taking time back

to eight tracks
and gold hub caps.
I am a kid,

which Simpson

the old man down
in cold blood.

was my
summer sleuth.

I never got
that it was you.
Baby, it was you.
