The Dull

as I wandered
through these carefully planned
neighborhoods
and all the houses stood in accord
and every lawn was trimmed
looking all the same

I saw no loose hems
no snagged skirts
and i sunk into another
depression
realizing
that only the polished
and the prim

married one another
like clones of the coin
taking the heart for granted
and it was all about
keeping up appearances
