– comparison boulevard –

Peeking through the windows

of other houses on the block,

I am a witness to 

beauty.

The splendor I see in

the neat decorations in some homes

rivals the glorious messes in others.

Naturally,

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.
