A new poem

I was honored to receive an honorific mention in the contest "Awaken the Sleeping Poet Festival." Here is my poem.

A Dream House

When you were here
My house was built with dreams

When you died, you left the door open
And my dreams fled behind you.

Now my house is just a stack of stones and wood
Where a television fills my brain -
With bastard dreams that I don’t desire.
