The One Room

We are multi-tenant dwellings, low
rise aggregations of living
space, rooms upon rooms
of differing perspectives and
opposite attractions…unburdened
by reality we live and breathe—work
and play—room to room

Inside is a place, a
room of warmth and quiet and
contentment…of stillness and
silence; a muted reverence
toward ourselves.
Inside there is a place, a
room of chaos and noise and
anger, fear, loathing and…
hatred; where
we hold ourselves
in contempt.
There are many rooms; simple
and complex, meaningful and
not…other rooms holding
other views.
These two rooms; hate and love
aren’t always on
different floors or opposite ends
or (we hope hope hope) different
sometimes they are
the same
the one we
live in.
