JanPoWriMo 1

Already making room
for space what will be
a life they can sleep
in here it is warm
maybe too warm for
the first of the year
so much stuff to set
aside when push comes
to love some years fill
up until we have to let
them go whole houses
tucked with belongings
that no longer home us
here can you use this
towel we don’t know
where to put it but if
we remember it will keep
our hands dry and warm
