The Doll House - A Magpie Tale

The Doll House

I would never play
with houses, leaving all such
to you, suffering
your attentions to
the details, all the many
odds and ends of life
in miniature
in the long and hazy days,
our days as they were.

I have kept this house
for over sixty years now
and will not explain
its sad disarray
because it still feels like you
and your favorite
late afternoon yarns.

I just have so little else
to show for it all.
