One Single Impression: Windows

Windows Everywhere

Windows, windows--windows everywhere
it's getting late let's play pour some wine
monster, monsters--antics give us fear
they're peeking in we can't tolerate

Windows, windows--windows everywhere
those neighbor kids peeping Toms them all
caught in the act bastards found us rare
here's our defense buy curtains first call

Windows, windows--windows everywhere
shoot them tonight buckshot in the arse
they called the cops no way would they scare
it's all a farce law won't give a hoot

Windows, windows--windows everywhere
beams through the glass supper's on the plate
hear my defense home is our castle
bigamist caught I.D. spelled my fate

Windows, windows--windows hard to find
everyone sees can't hide one small act
holler and curse the noise blows my mind
they kept the key I see through the gate

-- the bad --

Ah, indeed, those curtains can shield us from the kids we can't scare away!

Fun stuff, Jim.

What an interesting take on the prompt...and the photo really brought it home. Great read!

Indeed the world has many windows and many which curtains can not hide what is revealed.

didn't care for the photo but I like the repetition in the poem, it not only signal urgency but a sense of fear - I wonder how some people survive never going outside of their home

black humor -- good one, strong images, strong emotions.

Don't like what I see through these windows; glad for the times when I can play ignorant.

All sorts of windows looking back at you.

And I really enjoyed the post. I like windows and the poem was very nice.

I try to moderate all the visitors but when it gets up to 10,000 I don't know how it will be.

I am not sure what to think. . . I like the windows refrain -- it made me think of all the ways to see in to someplace and someone.

This window intrigues and I like it. BTW like your other blog as well, so I hop in there as well.

I must say, this is an interesting poem. It's a bit unsettling and it puts me off balance. Perhaps that is your intent.

Jim, this was very rich, like a cup of dark, almost bitter coffee. Wouldn't be able to drink it except for that touch of sugar. Well done.

interesting taking..

i feel this was awsome prompt...everyone's view has been so different that it is surprising..

Clearly it's those damn windows' fault.
