Abandoned Red Iron Chair

The courtyard’s small, but pleasant in its way:

young birches, laurel, and a bed of roses,

a winding path, picked out in red and gray,

the painted wrought iron chairs where, one supposes

two residents could sit and play at chess

upon the table, basking in the sun,

while sipping tea…but here I must confess

such fantasy breaks down as soon begun.
