Best Poem of Patricia Morse-McNeely

The House

Canting to one side
Paint gone -
Only a bare
Almost invisible trace, here, there-
Greying, silvering
In the sun
The rain
The wind
Whistling 'round your corners
Snatching bits and pieces
From your sagging head.
Your doorway
Open wide in silent screaming
Dark shadowed
The door, a hag's single lingering tooth
Hangs there
And tear-fractured window-eyes staring blindly
In the sun
At the holes in your apron
And your broken feet, unstepped.
The path to meet you is overgrown-
No footsteps press down the dusty grasses ...
