A Poor Man’s Dwelling

Clean Slate

Explore the room you’re in as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Pretend you know nothing. What do you see? Who is the person who lives there?

= = = = =

I scan around the room and see
Few marks of pride or vanity;
These poor accomodations say
Somebody’s lived the healthy way

Just windows open to the sea,
Along a varied gallery
Of furniture Italian-made
And library most retrograde

This person’s not imperial,
Well-rounded, not material;
Just modest unassuming grounds
That must have cost
Three million pounds
