no rent
I charge
for your
stay here,

one room
I have
so only one
at a time,

no doors
no locks
your will
will reign,

the story
of my past
hangs visible
on a frame,

if you
feel the need
to share
yours,

press
the ringer once
and I’ll be
there,

the ‘vacancy’
sign
that hangs
outside,

reads
‘home’
if you turn it
around,

and if ever
you feel sure
to want
to stay forever,

you are free
to change
what’s visible
on that display.

  1. Love how you use one single motif in a variety of ways to bring home the need for basically the same thing that you are giving.
    The second verse is outstanding.
