Next Door


I live near a house

With three garages

A lake and a little place

For the horses to sleep


Right next to this house

Lives a family I don’t know

But on Saturdays

When I drive past

I want to stop

And talk

With the people living there


Asking if they ever wonder

Why their house

Would fit on their neighbors’

Front porch
