– comparison boulevard –

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.
