17. prompt: "Tell me why ..."
She has two rooms in her brain
and house: one for art and poetry
the other for work, a home office.
She knows when she's in one room
she simply cannot be in the other.
But here's the painful part:
looking through the office
from where she sits writing
the fernery reminds her
there are items not handled at work
and her brain is doomed to be in two
rooms at once, while her body isn't.
