Two drunks are underneath my trailer.
These uninvited guests have crawled in to sleep.
Smells of urine and defecation
waft through prosaic board.
I hose it down in the morning,
spread boric acid amend skirting.
The next night familiar voices grumble
about the inconvenience.
They refer to me indirectly
as that control freak.
Our trailer park manager makes inquiries.
He reassures me. The reopening of next door's
drive-in-theater has attracted
the awards crowd. Everything
should return to normal once
the categories are decided.
