Front porch swing

Smell the sweet shrub 
Warm welcomes 
 not wreaths or decorations 
 no window or peep hole
Walk right in, no need to knock
 the lock has no key most days

Out back

Let the spring pull the screen door closed
 slowly and the hinges squeak
 fast, the door slams
Stand on the stoop
 toss the dish water to the back
 feed the scraps to the cats
