A stranger walking by this house
white paint, powdered royal blue trim,
white picket fence, an immaculate

windows closed, blocking all sound
leaving or entering the humble abode,
opaque curtains, ensuring all searching eyes
see only the surface. quiet, peaceful,
the perfect house for the perfect family.
