another daydream

Rather than an exposé
on entryways
––another excuse
to look askance
at polished wood
purporting to be a drawer
of a console table
whose contents are known––
you entreat me to explore the depths 
of neglect, and leave the budding
poem at the door.


Thanks, again, to David Lehman of "Next Line, Please" for choosing to share this poem as an example of an apostrophe prompt ( ).
