The second poem of the third week of the online retreat.
The keys are cards, blue and green,
with icons in white.
I assume the one with the lamp on it
controls the lighting.
I am incorrect.
They are only keys.
If this studio were a condo,
it’d go for $600k, easy.
That’s a bit rich for a place
where the windows can’t be opened.
At least the decor
is tasteful, if a bit sparse.
Maybe if they replaced the abstract art on the wall
with a facsimile in gold or platinum,
you could sell it and use the proceeds
to do a bit of remodelling—take care
of that windows-not-opening problem.
Then again, they don’t want people
to actually stay here.
Well, you know what I mean.
