I will write my house out of poems
Dream of brick and mortar dwelling

Perhaps, one with a smiling fireplace, a yard for a
Mulberry tree
Like limericks I used to read

There will be a warm cat slumbering
On the expansive sunny porch

An attic for love memories

A kitchen for fresh bread
To feed others

Warm cakes
To share with children

On lazy Sundays
