Floor length sheer drapes attract the curious.
Eyes like the tease, fantasize silhouettes,
mind pen dialogue to fill in emptiness.
There’s a bit of romance in
“the lives are always greener
on the other side of the curtain.”
Voyeurs can excuse their window peeping
with exclamations table lamp invitations are issued
every night when darkness flirts with light.
With the slamming of a door routine interjects
itself into the tableau… Watchers return to dinner,dog walks, and channel surfing toward sleep.
