RENOVATION
(9/10/18)

we can
scrap
the old
exteriors

fasten
to the old frame
a new outlook
for the public

a recreated
face
to show
the world

but even
though
some internal
aspects
may have been
altered
in the course
of external
redesign

the rooms
are basically
the same

walls

floors

us

returning
home
at the end
of the day
we are enthused
for a few
weeks

maybe even
for several
months

about our
new appearance

but inside
we still
eat
the same food

sleep
in the same
beds

shit
in the same
toilets

our escapes
from the routine
are so very
temporary

we sit
in the same
chairs

wondering

what's
next
