Front Door—HAIKUS and BEFORE and AFTER:
A front door is a statement—a haiku poem, if you will—about a house and the residents inside. Here are two haikus—a BEFORE and an AFTER— I wrote on our front door.
BEFORE: The flimsy Front Door of The House the day we bought it.
Oh thin, plywood door
Hollow as a cold coffin
Full of white-washed bones
DURING: Mr. Wonderful installing the new door himself! Uh-huh.
AFTER: The new Front Door--solid mahogany wood.
Hard wood, solid sound
Welcome friends, vintage style
Craigslist price makes me smile.
