Absurd Domesticity

The absurd domesticity of homes.

Windows with bright window panes
Curtains that flow down and up again
Kitchens with overflowing food
And beds that are always warm, even at the end of longest and shortest days.
White walls, pale walls that have memories greater than minds
Each corner is home to not just me.
Countless weathers have passed and countless suns have risen and set
Mangoes cut, clothes washed, teeth brushed
Dust swept off shoes and ground and beds and walls
Smiles that have been reflected in mirrors
Screws that have changed, water filters have been renewed
Plastic bottles of industrial products thrown
A countless parties and guests invited with
Love flowing in easy laughs.
There is music and electric sockets-
Work spaces laced with photographs and art, time catchers in circles and squares
Yellow lights hung from frames.

A comfort in this world gone disarray.
