shiny cars

shiny cars
dingy townhouses
bare trees

gray sky
single street light
snow route

worn shingles
smokeless chimneys
fading paint

fake yards
unkempt plant life
unseen roses

silence
Sunday afternoon
home sweet home

Where we lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts. That’s our red VW, a wedding gift from D’s mother, parked in front of the entrance to our apartment on the second floor. Home sweet home.
