Congress Street by Leah Grace O’Brien

There once was a time
when I drank beer in the shower
and listened to Lady Day 
on the busted old record player
it wasn't romantic or interesting
being poor hardly ever is
unless you have a good imagination
and know how to get what you want
but I lacked talent when it came to
such things
and couldn't even barter a new shower faucet
from the ancient handyman
who lived on the top floor
