You stand at the doorway.

You stand at the doorway.
“You will not like my home,” I say.
“I will love your home,” you say.
“I do not receive visitors,” I say.
“I am not visiting,” you say.
“It is a wreck,” I say.
You do not respond. Instead, you look at me
and something bursts inside
something awful, deep, and lonely
and it is swept away
and out that door
and I hear me say,
“Come in, come in, come in.”

  4. You’re welcome, Betsy. It’s exciting – I have a number of poems but have been so reluctant to share. It feels good to let the creative spirit roam freely.
