A warm yellow light
shines into the hall
my eyes try to adjust
to the darkness that surrounds me
it smells of wooden stairs
and the cold tickles my arms
it’s a bright sunny day outside

I just came home from the grocery store
where posh people shop
and the employees are always friendly
despite how stressful their day has been so far

I take out my keys
and open the mailbox
your letter fills the entire space
I close and lock the box
and walk up to my room
opening the envelope

This house has outlived
the interior design fashions of a century
this house has outlived
the interior design fashions of a century
this house has outlived
the interior design fashions of a century
this house has outlived
the interior design fashions of a century
