CITY GIRL CONSIDERS A HOUSE (THE HOUSE THAT FEELS LIKE LOVE)

The Ankh

Today I think I'd like to live in a house

A house that feels like love
from the front sidewalk
to the back yard

With a garden in the front
boasting all my favorite colors
heavy with all my favorite fruits
interspersed with all my favorite herbs

And neighbors who
despite giving me eyes because
I wear sundresses with no bra
and the smell of incense wafts into the street
don't talk shit because
the things I bake make them forget their diets
make them smile sweetly at their children
make them make love in the kitchen

A house with a study
the back wall adorned with books from floor to ceiling
and two desks facing each other for us to write
a bedroom for us to retire to
when we have creative blocks
white lilies on the nightstand
windows cracked open to welcome the summer breeze
and release the overflow of our laughter
and cries of love

A house with a shed in the back that serves as a studio
for me to commune with myself
through paints, clays, and charcoals
a yard with a table and many chairs
for us to commune with people we love
through food, drink, and stories
and ample space for the idea of our children
floating around our heads and through the grass like faeries

A house that will hold us
in this life until the next
