Good Night Home

Happiness is not allowed in this house
with the roof closed tight.
Man staring blank and alone.
Woman analyzing black and white.
Child quiet in his room
alone with friends of all shapes and sizes.
Creaks of crossbeams to voice them
air and lights to make them move.
Man rolls over hoping to see less.
Woman has the tree under her fingers
flicks and sips to more black escape.
Child pulls sheep over face to begin to count
allows his mind to spin.
Man contemplates.
Woman places the world down and enters
where she had left
unhappy with what is in front of her.
There is no home here
only shelter.
