The House of The Hanged Man- Dawn Mueller


The House of the Hanged Man


The squeaky floorboards
had nothing more to say, and
neither did the doors,


but the hall clock just
wouldn’t stop tsk-tsk-tsking
about it


It was like every other
day before-
except that he wasn’t.


Morning just kept coming
wiping its yellow hands 
all over the world,


as if it were appropriate
to go around painting sepulchers
in such bold color.
