This was the old woman who ate canned dog food This the red wagon she pulled through the alleys This the pack of stray dogs that went with her Here are the boys who shouted and threw things Here are the barrels of trash they all searched through Here are the boys' dogs barking at the old woman's dogs There is the bar where she went each night to sit There is the sparkling schlitz sign over the mirror There is the jukebox that only works if you kick it These are the sleeves she touched each night when she left These are the dogs coming out of the shadows to join her These are the ties of the railroad tracks home Yes These are the ties of the railroad tracks home.
