commonwealth

i was born in the poorest county

in the fifth poorest state in the union

though kentucky isn’t truly a state

it’s a commonwealth

where wealth is uncommon

and the only glistening skylines

down in those parts are tombstones

i’ve known for years at heart

i’m an expatriate

who wants no part

of that prime real estate
