Two For One Sale

The chair creaks
the roof doesn’t leak
there is a doorway,
I can see umbrellas
paint and guitars
and dreams

The chair creaks and the winter
and the trees wait patiently
like this poem,
wait patiently
for the spring breeze to
say that we made it through another
too warm or too cold,
alone or together,
we made it,
and the ice will be gone
and the water will be there
there is a
two for one sale
in the hydrogen
and oxygen department,
and the world lines up
for spring
