Having enough to

Starchy corn
Summer heat
Shit planting flies
With a windmill in the background

Enough money raised
Timber, low beams
Chunky leather sofas
Sticks to our bare legs
As the furniture moves
                past our noses

A washing machine
and wooden chairs
           for the dining table

Upstairs there are cries and groans
Beds being assembled
Trapping fingers
Breaking nails and
Bruising knees
On the hardwood floor

We need some rugs for our new home too.
