The Outhouse Out Behind Alice's Restaurant

Musty and moth balls,
Dust and aging wood.

Peeling wallpaper covering
thin walls.

Creaky furniture and too hot water,
midnight serenades and smoldering ashes.

Morning s'mores roasting
over citronella candles.

A sun peeks over
mountain trees,
Buckeyes sliver down
the morning creek.

Cracking paint stains
my fingers.
