This is the closest you would probably get to my house
without me knowing you are coming
The living room is exposed.
At night you can see us clearly framed by the windows.
You will have already turned the corner
at the top of the road to get to see in.
The trees in the back go bald with winter
but only the neighbor horses live there.
If you are desperate enough
You may be able to catch me in my undies doing laundry
Why would anyone want that sight?
I put these us when I thought my grandson would sleep in this room
Hawaiian print of the blue.
A place I miss tremendously
no longer willing to get on a plane to see.
It would be nice to close the curtains and keep in the warmth.
I guess I will go to IKEA while visiting
the big city with my daughter
And see if there is anything
that I could stand
to cover my wonder world.
Is it time?
Should I make this a home with curtains?
Is that what it means to finally understand
I am staying here
For a good long time?
