anchorage #6

can we stay here forever

and wear the softwood

of the banister

until our palms know every line

and desire something new

like your exacting coffee table in


and my white sheets in Sweden

that will pull us farther away

than our dreams ever could conceive

but for now let’s enjoy

the creak in the floorboards

and the leak in the shower

we can’t stay here forever you know
