[A glass house holds no interior design]

Brent Goodman

A glass house holds no interior design.
Ask the autumn-lit trees how to say thank you.

No one will ever live here, only visit.

A glass house claims no exterior structure.
All architects want to live beyond their deaths.
Even the drawn curtains rise invisible.
