cheerful imaginings

striped yellow and white door
it is a beacon in dark times
the yellow siding says a happy ‘hiya’
and the doormat says welcome

striped yellow and white door
white column framing
innocent details that
put a person at ease

striped yellow and white door
counts how many bodies
have gone into the home
but never come back out

striped yellow and white door
dreams of becoming so densely striped
it appears cream colored
the house it possesses
whimpers with forced
cheerfulness
