I grew up in a house that did not rest
This is to say the home too was restless
The bathroom door spit splinters
Into brother's knuckles
And the bedside table could not stand still
Would pound its corners into the dreaming head of a little girl
Every time the staircase yelled in father's footsteps
So the girl would awaken
And the mattress would tense
For this home held no rooms
For a full night's sleep
