pristine and white
with lace and rose-covered wall paper
around every corner
and every detail a little girl's delight
for fifty-four years before
struck him like a blast of lightening
bright and dangerous
a glass house. it would be
his most dramatic, beautiful and prized work to date
something to give those auctioneers
a real reason to shout!
diamond cut crystal windows
lit with orange and blue and red
the illusion of a fireplace
and a complacent cat curled up beside it
the details you would see through the glass
no cut-out forth wall to reach through and touch
a dollhouse that no doll
could ever escape or be played with.
he threw out the amazing idea;
fore the fear or being trapped
scared him like no other.
