Don't Clean The House

Don't clean the house

I like the silent clutter
of books, words and dreams
that lie about,
waiting for you
to string them in verse.

Love the smell of incense
that hangs
midway between the kitchen
and the warm bedroom.

and the dust that clings,
the curtains that hide.
passions when passions strike.

don't clean the house
of me and you
making it an empty shell.

Clutter is so organic....
and sanitized, clinical places
so devoid of passion !
Great words, Sunil.
