       Rooms By The Sea 


       Walls, white and clean
       Furniture, straight and neat
       Like pins arranged in a box
       The door opens and we see
       A sea coming straight up to
       The very top step - but not entering
       Waiting quietly for an invitation
       Or for someone to come to the door
       Perhaps the lady of the house to dangle her toe in the water
       But no one comes
       Even the sunlight is well-behaved, shaping itself
       By the frame of the door

       I wish a fish would flop itself
       Onto the friendly yellow carpet
       Lending some scandal to a room
       Begging to be mussed
       After all, rooms by the sea were made for adventure
