I'm not sure we completely get over the opinions of our childhood. Then again, there are always new neighbors.

My beloved grew up
On Long Island.
He has opinions
About New Jersey.
I grew up
In Minnesota
I still have opinions
About Wisconsin
And Iowa
Heavens yes,
North and South Dakota,
Even though I now live
In Illinois.
It’s always the neighbors.
It’s always
The neighbors.
It’s always
The neighbors.
