Trailer Door

Sleeping Jeppe Bruno Liljefors


First Impressions #3

A depressed area, 
two rickety trailer homes
in the gravel drive, one thin door swinging
out, a crumpled, sweaty man jumping down,
stopping me before I reached the colorless
main house, its stoop covered by dirty
fake flowers in pots.

A striped cat is in the grass licking a paw,
basking by some cracked stepping stones,
otherwise unmoved, oblivious to the shabby
surroundings—perhaps it is loved, well
cared for, and absolutely aware of its
sole perfection.
