Homeglow After Visitors

by Alan Harris
Two couches
smile in dim light
over the active
weights they
recently bore.

Spots on the wallpaper
remember certain
apt verbs.

Ceiling regions
glow with laughings
over sudden quips.

Hopes,
confessions,
worries
have now slipped out
through the windows
to germinate or vanish
in the sod outdoors.

Are the smiles,
the glows,
the illuminations
that haunt our home
still stirring within
our sometime
visitors?

A spring inside
the older couch
chuckles.





From the book Writing All Over the World's Wall (1995)
