Peeking through the windows
of other houses on the block,
I am a witness to
The splendor I see in
the neat decorations in some homes
rivals the glorious messes in others.
I fret over the tale
my own house has to tell.
Is it originally crafted?
Is there an attention to detail?
Is it making a strong statement?
Is it keeping up with the Joneses?
Is it even keeping up with the Kardashians?
Silly of me to peek through each house window
and not recognize my reflection in each glass.
