where my father is retiring
in situ
in view of the ocean

the most prominent feature occupying his desk is a back scratcher

in the empty fridge nothing the freezer only holds three frozen meals and a carton of ice cream

a circle on the wall expecting to be a clock is a frisbee

on the porch i look for firewood and finding no kindling am momentarily possessed to burn a croquet mallet instead
