Front porch is background
for a front lawn choking
clusters of dandelions join
peeled paint, passing
wheelchair ramp at an extreme
angle, points to an open
Afghan War arms take
two smoking tries to roll
up the incline, sometimes three
provide a deserved smack.
the way it was, wife
and kids, picnics, driving around
lots of laughter. Now it's
useless legs, lots of booze.
Harry's probably ten,
Joan's arms miles away
the only activity around.
