Kenyon Wells – Regardez

The house is old and quiet,
grey walls inside and out.
Long narrow windows side by side by side
built of ancient glass gone green
stare absently and resolutely
onto a street where September
always seems to be in season.
The surface of each mullioned pane
is elegantly streaked from top to bottom
from years of dutiful and playful rubbing
with wavy avenues a finger or two wide,
remnants of idle children lost in thought
and diligent servants lost in their work.
Outside in the moment, in the rain,
skinny French girls in shiny black shoes
dance with one another gracefully,
and with the spatter on the stones,
leaping up and back and whirling with the wind.
