- Care for a snack? The kitchen is to the left. Please, feel at home.
You seem pleasantly familiar
So I’ll let you raid my refrigerator; and I’ll even share the bacon I brought home–given that I run on a full stomach myself.
I’m not sorry for keeping sacred, the fire that fuels my belly.
- You’re welcome to stay: an hour, a few days; forever?
Granted that we stand a l o n e together.
- Silence is served on a daily basis; if it does not suit your unrest, kindly leave.
- Dining varies from the freshly baked to the left over, from takeout to slow-cooked meals, in the home to the street; my kitchen is nothing but mingled.
Dearest guest, if your palate resists the bittersweet taste of adventure, then don’t occupy space in my living room. Coffee is always intoxicating.
- I’ll slip into my intimates once in a while: disheveled hair and ragged pajamas, moods and melancholy.
Those who mind must leave; and those who matter won’t.
- House fixtures comprise of paint stains and motley music, a library, stacks of notes, seasoned objects, tools and tools, whimsy, and toil; film with soft lighting, and a flurry of blooms potted in soil.
Kindly make room for treasure; it’s the only way to save space.
- Please take down the picket fence around my perimeter; it cages the lush, and these flowers grow wild.
- Last but not the least: keep off the art.
This house was built surreal.
This is my home eternal. May you grace its floors with reverence.
