village



here in this house i peel
potatoes with a knife
place wood into the fire
plait a little girl's hair
and focus on the layers
of crumbling paint
watch my thumb blister
from the burns, arch my
neck towards the mountains
and wonder how you cope
on your end with all
the humidity

there is room enough here
for both of us.
