brick and mortar

we greet the future
armed with comfortable patterns
invincible plaids

indestructible
time-honored, ready to ride
ingenuity

let the kids all laugh
make hobbies of our old ways
just leave them alone

they always come home

  1. Indeed, it seems at one time or another the children DO come home...though at earlier times in their lives they wanted to move FAR, far away.
