The Brightly Painted House

A brightly painted house

waits for lodgers.
Wishing someone wondered what

could be inside?
Pedestrians pass, admiring –

no one stops.

With no tenant to attend to it,

the house sits lonely.
Cold crawls

through broken windows.
Dust sneaks

up slippery stairs.
Moisture clings

to hard walls.
And one day,

the house collapses.

And still the paint shines brightly.
