Barley Avenue
I know that street
where you can go
to the house
hidden behind three elms
capture a deal of warmth with
the right words
a fine daisy bouquet
old Mrs. Sutter there
she talks of special dinners she once was at
years past
and can remember each special dinner
the exact dishes she ate
how they made her feel
that talent of hers shows
a deceptively simple care for life
like kicking a lamb
to poo poo
such a talent
