Magpie 52 - A Pause
Long after she walked past
She thought of it
The little green house
On Bent Street.
Shoved to one side
On a double lot
It had what it's neighbors didn't
A yard with trees.
She found herself circling the block
Looking again at it stretching back
Bigger than its facade revealed
Seeing at last the For Sale Sign.
She memorized the number to call.
About her little green house
Before hurrying on for her appointment
Pausing not to ponder fate.
