Day 27 of 30

HOUSEMAKER

something to be said
about knowing how to arrange
the alphabet into spell
and how to fold a fitted sheet
into square and how to season
a cast iron and a fresh piece
of swordfish and how to choose
a frame and a space on the wall
and a color or two and a
chair or three and a hanger
and move an iron across natural
fibers so wrinkle go smooth and
smooth make me smooth and there’s
something to be said
about knowing how to build a
house with the alphabet and still
not be able to sound out love
