Dream 

Maybe I want a house

That’s large enough for a kitchen stove,

A shelf 

For beloved books 

And a bathtub for sorrowful nights.

Maybe I want a home,

Small enough to put a garden in

The front yard

Yet

Close enough,

To witness my neighbor peel

Potatoes on their front porch.

Maybe after college,

 a simple life.
