when did home become a four-letter word (part II)

one can only imagine that
to possess one’s very
own dream home
should prove
a right night-
mare

for the architect the soul employs
to conceive of dwellings
fit for one’s dream self
to inhabit follow a
perverse logic all
of their own

a patio bathroom where
one can show off in
full view of the
neighbors
comes to
mind

as does a jello-filled moat
surrounding one’s
loungeroom-cum-
petting
zoo
?!

even so the glossy magazines
sell us on the idea year after
year that our needs for
adequate shelter are
being inelegantly
dealt with

when surely we are best housed
in homes of bricks and mortar
as opposed to such flimsy
stuff as dream houses
and pure whimsy are
made on.
