One-Story-Carport-Houses by Matthew Milia

One-story-carport-houses
Shining in their thawing
Shining in their dawning

One-story-carport-houses
Under water towers
Glistening sylvan lake powers

One-story-carport-houses
Yards are overflowing
Lilacs and the knowing

That our bodies
Made this season come
Made the children succumb

That our bodies
Made the whitewashed town
And glacial lakes strewn all around

There’s winter
Left in the cold wind
But the sky is warm and thin

And our bodies made
One-story-carport-houses
