Half Acre

I’ll let you buy half an acre of my heart.
If you promise to settle there forever,heartworld
build a house and
raise your kids there.

I’ll let you expand your territory yearly
(maybe daily)
I won’t build fences
and there won’t be boundary markers anyway.
If you promise to settle there forever.

No credit check, no background check,
no leveraging assets.
I’ll lend you all the trust you need
for the purchase. I’ll cosign the deed.
If you promise to settle there forever.

The land is fallow,
but we’ll till it.
If it burns, we’ll rebuild it.
And maybe even chart a decent map…
If you promise to settle there forever.

(*Residency is required,
and please try to like the neighbors.)

  1. I realized I haven’t posted any poems in while so I wrote you one about what’s been on my mind recently. (Though most of you own extensive property in the area.) It’s more of a ditty, really. A “real” updatish post is in the works.

  2. I really really like the poem. tho, to be safe you might want to do background checks :P and i like the heart map too.
