I Want A House On Moss Green Velvet

I want a house on moss green velvet
that can never be foreclosed.
let it be ringed with milky quartz in a circle.

let it be swept with pine branches 
and when the dust flies,
let it hide the creditors.

I want a house on moss green velvet
near wild berries, just in case.
let wild fairies trundle through the forest

flinging me enough peanut butter crackers
to last through a lifetime of winters. 
and I willl wash my one good dress
(the one with a bit of lace)

in the creek by the one good road and blessed-
that shines like amethyst on Sundays
invisble on GPS.
