Imagine Your Mind

If this were framed, and hung in a quiet corner where it could be read each day, it might serve as a kind of household guardian spirit. It might serve even if it were not read. After all, poems have their ways.


Imagine Your Mind

Imagine, your mind,

until it imagines itself home,

raindrops on a silver coach,
clattering on stones,

a sign nailed on with flowers,
proprietor of a quaint hotel,

hand pump in the yard,
bower, bell,

a final end to war,

gentle hands to smooth
the bedsheets
