Clump by JD DeHart

Among the hotel room
features is bad cable that
barely works, a bed stocked
with tiny crumbs and hairs
just below the headboard,
and a clump of hair someone
has left in the windowsill.

Briefly, it may be thought
that the clump could be fashioned
into a small moist sculpture
of a bird, looking on.
It would even balance on the finger,
could be tied on in fact, just
like Mary Poppins.

Most people just ask for another
room or drive to the next hotel,
instead.
