Under a single roof

House in the city
a house on the outskirts too
one house is far from the smoke, surrounded by green
by horses and trees and imagination to fill
the bowls and clean the cups in the morning

the second house rigid
rulers and pencils, sleep hours
and bath time, it has a comfortable sofa
but no one to tell a bedtime story

the first house, they reserve for the weekend
for the time allocated within the week for breathing
and a quick visit
growth lives the second house suffocated by
the smoke of the city, the screaming and noise
this is where the children grow-

in the first house, they live by the sun
in the second they live by the moon
because one cannot house day and night
under a single roof.
