Another day in Paradise

A room of muted turquoise and fresh painted walls
furled with loved objects, stray cushions


Dripping washing looks out to the wet decking
through rain on glass


Books are everywhere, while a scatter
of small paintings have taken the shelves


My telescope parked in the corner
reflects the metallic squawk of a hen about to lay


I survey abandoned mail, mugs of cooled tea
and a restless husband watching re-runs


Then he gets up and goes.
