House.

Lost in the country
A living coffin
Family, buried within
Faces
Showing frown, smile, some showing nothing
Bodies
Upright, slouched, douveted up
Footsteps
Tip toeing, stomping, keeping time
Voices
Monotone, raised, whispering, shouting, grumbling
Feelings
Happy, sad, down, highs and lows
The head of the household
Busying herself in the kitchen
Poet, cocooned in his quarters
Keeping a lid on happenings
Master of seclusion, delusion.
(c) Chris Black. March 2018.
