You shouldn’t be surprised that the #place
you always sought, and now have been given,
carries with it a certain disappointment.
Here you are, finally inside, and not a #friend
in sight. The only gaiety that exists
is the gaiety you’ve brought with you,
and how little you had to bring.
The bougainvillea outside your front #window,
like the gardener himself, has the look
of something that wants constant praise.
And the exposed wooden beams,
once a main attraction, now feel pretentious,
fit for someone #other than you.
But it’s yours now and you suspect
you’ll be known by the #paintings you hang,
the #books you shelve, and no doubt
your need to speak about the wallpaper
as if it weren’t your fault. Perhaps that’s why
wherever you go these days
#vanity has followed you like a clownish dog.
You’re thinking that with a house like this
you should throw a big party and invite
a Nick #Carraway and ask him to bring
your #dream#girl, and would he please also
referee the uncertainties of the #night?
You’re thinking that some #fictional
characters can be better friends
than #real friends can ever be.
For weeks now your dreams have been
offering you their #fractured truths.
You don’t know how to inhabit them yet,
and it might cost another #fortune to find out.
Why not just try to settle in,
take your place, however undeserved,
among the fortunate? Why not #trust
that almost everyone, even in
his own house, is a troubled guest? 2 ♡ 0 ✍
