A Room of My Own

And it's nondescript.
This week's living room inventory:
a green iguana (on the couch),
an AM/FM radio,
seven shoe boxes,
two feet of unwashed clothes.

I come home early.
Sometimes the iguana catches
a fruit fly in mid-buzz.
I turn on the music.
Shoe boxes are caught
on emptiness.
It's never Monday enough
for the dry-cleaner's.

I complain about reptiles
and foot problems
to strangers in the bus.
Is this what I've always wanted?
The repo man says
he wants everything as it is.
