the glass house project. (entry 8)
i don't remember why
i was so attracted to beach house when there were so many other options
that were more sophisticated
so dark, it would have hidden
and spilled coffee
and blood from the softball injury
that stayed on your shin for weeks.
but instead, i went with beach house
and that white background
got dingy fast -
and the red floral fitted sheet
only stayed that red through one wash.
and don't you remember the flat sheet with its ruffled blue and white.
the ruffle ripped off
before even gus was around
to practice sleeping through the night
in bed with the big people.
