One Man’s Homestead Is Another Man’s Junk

A rushy old cabin,
faded white door.

A privy wanting a door,
no longer answering nature’s call.

Wagons without horses,
wheels stop turning.

No tremors in a creek,
wanting to be water.

Cattle once stood,
near dusty-edged pond.

I photograph,
pondering the past.

A story there,
dead at prose end.
