Six Rooms


For Lauren


The first is my window blinds.

Slats with pull cords

Between light and dark.


The second is my carpet.

A magic carpet of wine tracks

Notated by cannabis tacks.


The third is the cigarette tin

In which I keep my addiction

To loose change and nicotine.


Fourth, a few fossils

I found on a beach

In primeval childhood.


Next to last my old pool cue.

I play impossible shots

On imaginary tables.


Finally, a faded photograph

In inexpensive frame

Of someone loved and lost.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
