Heathpark House

A circular skylight sits in the ceiling
pretending it’s the only thing
shining light on everything. The warm breakfast
butter curls like a long lost hug
next to pancakes as soft as bedding.
Uninvited mushrooms pop up in the garden
and are welcomed with a wave;
this place is not just dog friendly.
A toddler is outside chasing bubbles
desperate for the fun to never pop.
