Well!
I have nothing to say.
What is it you want?
I won’t tell anyway.

You need not know me:
no business of yours.
I know where I’ve been
things seen and done.

You wouldn’t believe me
if I begun.
So go on your way
and leave me alone.

Sitting on a street corner
cold
and it’s snowing.
Welcome home.
