Four Poems by Erick Piller appear in EOAGH

I Want a Tiny House

I want a tiny
house for my tiny
life. I want to sleep
efficiently in
a solar-powered
hole and expend as
little energy
as I can. I want
to breathe less often
so as not to suck
in and kill microbes
who have done nothing
to me and whom I
shall regard as my
models for living.
