Two Years Now

Two years now.
Well,
Almost.
Homeless?
Not really.
A tent in the woods.
Just residentially challenged.
The apartment
Gone.
Clothes,
Books,
Shoes,
China,
Crystal,
All gone.
All the objects
I perceived
That made me
‘ME’
Gone.
A house
Stripped bare
Not desolate
Not in ruins
Reconstructing the self
The window trappings gone
Peer into my mind
I’ve seen houses
Expensive
Inexpensive
Under construction
The building techniques identical
Why is the one
Worth more than the other?
A label?
A connotation?
Isn’t the structure more important?
What do the furnishings
Exterior
Really matter?
Mere trappings
When the mind is as clear
As still
As a mountain lake
As clear
As brilliant
As a diamond
When the body is a sacred temple
What window dressings are necessary?
