Wall Art

They are selling their condo

all inclusive reads the promotional draw

You’ll get everything you need to live well

There’s a stove and a washer

refrigerator, a red sofa, and two beds

A mirror in the hallway so you always

have someone you can tell your troubles to

Drift in and out each of the five rooms

a virtual tour riding tilted on a giant balloon

Each wall’s smooth as sheer windswept cliffs

no art or books here to hold or pause to gaze

Curious returns to the shining hall mirror

condolence messages via a smudged screen

You must be so lonesome here

Walls

No scenery

out this window

No inspiration

planned for me

No green

No blue

No sunrise or stars

No midnight moon view

No windsong gently swaying

between leaves of tall trees

Ah but I can still find beauty

in the quiet lay of these red bricks

I can imagine

careful hands that set them here

I can count them

I can find marks unique in each one

I can watch shadows for hours

as days and seasons pass

And I can find light

shining back from my Wall

clear through my window

straight into me.
