Yet never been there

Heavy sleep
Back to places I know so well
I was away too long
And woke up groggy
The same pool
The same tangle of wires
The same place
The same city streets
Been down them before
Motorcycle between my legs
Yet never been there
And that lovely street
Wide and still; quiet
From the harbour up to the top of town
That was a new place
I liked it very much
But no people
Just events and me
Me on my own
Just living other lives
