Put In My Place

She looked at me and said

‘buy this place and make it yours’

I looked around in protest

a life of isolation

no pub here I noted

and so she showed me the pub

small, intimate, covered in vine

“lovely no?”

and she looked at me

“buy this place and make it yours”

I looked around in protest

what will I do here?

“raise goats & geese

tend to vines

you will not want more”

I looked at her

and heard the refrain over again

and who will speak to me here?

I am an alien

and she said I would learn

and who will cook for me

who will share these days?

she looked at me in the eye

as we passed a small green village house

and told me

“buy this place and make it yours”
