I Should Move Closer To Myself

I should move closer to myself,
but I don’t think I am up to code.
Would probably have to redo
the plumbing.

I should repaint the front door
a bright red and line the mind
with sweet-smelling balsam.

I should invite the neighbors
in for tea with me,
That old renegade woman that
fires random shots at anyone
who sees her tender, tender heart.

  1. Vicki, I think once for about 10 minutes I was up to code. Maybe twice and I moved closer to me. I’ve been visiting back and forth ever since when I have chance. And, then once, I painted my front door red and it brightly stood out in my extremely quiet, conservative then-neighborhood. Now I am still thinking about working on your last stanza — the ‘should invite’ one. :)) I am swearing I will get it done this summer. Wouldn’t that be something? And, I do stand a chance because, in this case, my neighbor is the renegade and she doesn’t scare ME! :))) xo
