She was creative

says the art supplies and recipe books on her shelf

Her art all over the room, spread feelings.

The family photos showed four

but there were three in his dwelling,

says the shoes on the steps of the stairs,

and the toothbrushes in their restrooms.

The scented air gave creativity

says the heated stove and the opened books,

for it smelled like herbs and smoke

because there was too much creativity.

His house in a corner,

was so lonely,

and so dark,

says the unlit street light,

but the house was filled with three,


three people,

three human life forms,
