A Dollhouse

A Dollhouse

the tragic is beautiful
with love and imagination

a cardboard box
adorned in shades of blue
wallpapered with scrap fabric
and some Elmer’s glue
Scissors Cut Misshaped Holes
creating imperfect windows

my castle
my mansion
my palace

a little girl’s dream of a perfect life
a handsome husband
the docile wife
a sleeping baby in a bassinet
a cat, a dog
with a white picket fence

innocence existed
even knowing
this dream would be discarded
