What a Home Owner Doesn’t Tell You

I almost went back there

It’s too soon

I can’t handle the tall grass up the stairs

The gardener really should fix that

I can’t use that railing for support, look how wobbly it is

I’ll tell the handy man to go to Lowe’s

Stop it

Something must be done to those weeds

And these leaves !  Is it Autumn already?

I have always loved our tule tree

                                      Sitting under the tree of life

                                                                                    Ironic isn’t it

You were easy to love

A needy consistent that felt seasonal

I only need air to breathe

Love can be as brutal as winter winds

or an inconstant puppy


You only need air
