The Tomato-coloured Couch 3:20pm

I can sit in The Sun

on My Tomato-coloured Couch

happy to have My Living Room back

from The Exodus

of M(EYE) X Miss Tree —

I can listen to The Coffee House

and wait for a phone call

from My Son

while the snow melts

off the shovelled steps —

I can live

in My Beautiful House relaxed

no longer feeling bereft

of family

and feeling that M(EYE) Life

is complete
