Dining Room Wall in December

Updated on November 26, 2011

The red velvet casts

A shadow from the lights

That is judgmental

It sees what they don’t see

The fur-lined felt mocks

Twice, once for pure fun,

The other out of spite

We see what they don’t see

Canvas drawn piano girl stares

At the ebony and ivory keys

With disapproval and pity

She sees what they don’t see

The wooden fortress reigns

The room, with supremacy

All else hangs upon its notion

I see what they don’t see

Unknowing, unseeing

Uncaring, unfeeling

They gaze back unaware

Why can’t they see what we see?
