Remodeling

By Janeen Rastall

You dream
that they have all come back
to the home we no longer own,
the house on the cul de sac.
We give each child a room
finding attics on floors that never existed before.
Only our room remains unchanged,
balconyed to oak boughs.
Before we sleep,
we dangle from gold fringed branches
stir sheets of leaves free.

– refers to the words “house” and “room” in the poem Grip by Worthy Evans
