Sugar Hill

I have been painting the walls of this place

in preparation for your arrival.

The decanters are polished and arranged in a row

and they a hold a sign between them

that says they have been waiting for your hands.

The tables and the windows have been dusted.

When the light comes in, it has a place to sit.

It can fold its hands between the set of my best silver

and find itself gorging on the warmth of my kitchen.
