#12: FLOOR PLAN OF THE RENTED ROOM CALLED HOME
Books everywhere – four wooden shelves
overflowing onto the floor
by the bed.
I say bed, but really
it’s just a mattress (a bedstead
would be too big in a room so small)
A mirror finally after so many years –
wouldn’t be necessary were it not
for conducting practice.
The Major – redoubtable desktop computer
runs smooth as a skater’s blade on ice
graces the writing desk that’s home
to everything else:
scanner, speakers, pliers, pencils,
We won’t talk about the closet
so little space, no drawers.
Attached bathroom, a gift
if ever there was one
boxed-up momentos of past lives
along one wall.
Small but this is home
