once,never twice

"i am selling this house
and moving to Georgetown-
this place is too big and i am too old
i need to move soon.Someone came,made me an offer
i sold right away. i have to move all this stuff out today.
Those roses i planted myself.My son @16 -he made those shelves.
After the Air Force,worked all his life for IBM-laid off after 29 years.
Did not know what a resume was!Thank you for taking this-
i would have had to take them to hazardous disposals otherwise.
(Three dollars later,rich in stories,i leave with cleaning fluids
to scour the season anew.Smiling,at home,entranced ,i return..

"That lawnmower is $150
The washer and dryer $300 each -i can take them with me"
(One bite only of the apple of life
Fall from Paradise-
