our new home

we hunted for a house
we knew exactly what we wanted
a bath tub big enough
to make love in

we had finally saved a decent down payment
years of scrimping, avoiding Starbucks
we didn’t care about much
mostly a bath tub big enough
to make love in

our Realtor kept asking us
why we rejected this house or that one
after the 4th weekend of nice homes
we told her
we want a bath tub big enough
to make love in

her eyes lit up “I know just the place.”
we fell in love with the small home
and the huge bathtub
our Realtor gave us a bubble bath basket
with our keys, paperwork all signed

the first thing we did, turned on the water
ran it just right with lavender bubbles
filling the house with anticipation
then we climbed in, made love
and enjoyed our bath tub
which certainly was big enough
to make love in
