Lacking

By The Big Hat

Go to that street.
See it?
a streetlamp that will never be fixed
no kids out playing.
glass on the street.
look at the front yard.
an overgrown
l a w n
look
closer
a solid wood door.
no paint
no designs
no windows
what do they have in common?
they all lack flavor.
devoid.
mundane.
enter the house.
a rectangular vase
shriveled weeds
look down.
fabric on the floor
attempting to be
a rug
singular color.
white.
remember the inhabitants
trapped in the past
by means of their minds
go into the backyard
see the garden?
Choked
by
weeds
the fence.
barbed wire on the top.

wanna hear a secret?

if you climb that fence,

on the other side

you will find a paradise.
a
whole
new
world.
