You Know that
the Smell of Your House
that Distinct
You Know the Certain
You Hear the clock on the Wall
the Sound of the
Anchor Mans Voice On the Evening News Announcing All that is Bad in the World
the Way the Chair Next to the Front Door is a Dumping Ground for Everything
the Way Your End Tables are Cluttered with Bills, Nick-knacks and Christmas Decorations that Still Haven't Been Put Away
The Piano No One Plays, The School Pictures From 5 Years ago that No One has Bothered to Change, The Couch that is so Worn the Impression of Your back is Embedded in the Cushions
And Everything in that Room Will Remind You of All the Bad News, Emotions and Memories that Live in Your Living Room

The author's comments:
I was sitting in my living room (obviously) and was trying to find inspiration for a poem to write for school when I realized that everything in that room had a story that goes with it. And then I realized that they all "live" in my living room. So I wrote about things in my living room that hold a story.
