IF MY SONG...

               This, they thought,

               Was the great mistake
               At the heart of the city

               A mistake
               Which could be partially assuaged

               Only by the body's
               Fictional return

               To a false and racist
               Place called "home,"
               Though Thomas Wolfe,

               A real Southerner,
               Told them,

               "You can't go home again."

               If my song can make you homesick,

               I'm happy.
