PRIVATE PICTURE

by joannagilmanhyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 2:30pm

Here I sit

in Nova Scotia

Land O’ My Dreams

with the salt fog

wafting past My Living Room

Window

My Husband has joined Me

on The Tomato-coloured Couch

where I often write

to avail My Self

of every opportunity

here in seclusion

to realize

My Public Life
