Tiny Kitchen

A Baltimore row-house
Over a hundred years old
Views of my favorite park
A place to read
A place to write
A cute apartment, my first without roommates
One bedroom
One bath
Hardwood floors
built-in bookshelves, and a
Tiny kitchen
with a tiny stove
and a tiny fridge

A tiny ledge, for the cat to lounge
before a tiny window.
All enclosed in antique French doors

How many Holly Golightly parties happened there?
One can never tell
Friends and neighbors and strangers
Stopping by, making meals, sharing stories
Reading poetry, watching fireworks
and dreaming up adventures

If I close my eyes and drown out the present
I can still be there
In my tiny kitchen
Cooking on my tiny stove
