His fingers furred with Dorito dust
Orange light / Aztec fashion
have long dispensed with the Finlandia kitchenware.
We use what is not ours.
The record collection pressed against
The wall that is not our wall, is, however.
Spines with their own smile lines, weak, white.
I like to think it listens to us
as we mop gravy from Finlandia
wash up, fold stiff towels
and move on, upstairs.
I left Billy Joel on to make
the clock ticks reverberate
against the clothes horse, book piles,
gifted television set, broken chair.
The ironing board, at rest
divides room from storage
printed with use
