woodpecker

woodpecker outside my window
i bang the wall
slap it
pecker gone

outside
i’m inside
and that wood
was never harder

i love you

but you’re putting holes in this house

and the shingles
and coating
that protect me from rain
are falling off
one by one

and i leak more water

you were my favorite
i left the door open for you
you could of just walked in
