Citizen of No Where

I got a new roommate last night
Some young kid
Who doesn’t speak a word of German
Or English
Or Spanish

I don’t know his name
I asked downstairs
It sounded like Absel (Ahp-SEL?)
It’s eleven in the morning
And he hasn’t woken yet

I’ve been out for coffee at the mission
And used one of the Bahnhof HotSpots
Now I’m back, waiting for the mail
And I can smell him
Or it could be me
But I don’t smell like that
I think

The mail came
My circumstances
Haven’t changed
I’m still
