Homes

ın the night ı see poor homes, their lamps war-time darkened
their walls naked
their rooms crowded
poor homes, their window panes too windy

ı see lonely homes in the night
their cats in front of their windows
on their walls lost lives captured in picture frames
their books autumnal
lonely homes with small tables.

ı see happy homes at night
their lamps a veritable full-moon
laughing bibelots in front of their windows
wide tables big armchairs
happy homes their drapes wide open

ı see scary homes in the night
pitch dark, lonesome homes
who lives there, ı do nor know
which weird folk
their dark colored drapes closed tight
their interiors unrevealed
sometimes shadows glide across the drapes
ı am curious
yet ı know that if ı ring the bell
ıt will be peril opening the door
