Room for Living

chandelier
Front Room Chandelier

If you listen
between the heirloom china cabinet
and the Tiffany lamp by the sofa
you can hear faint melodies of memories
like tinkling crystals of a chandelier

Deals dealt
Announcements proclaimed
Sacrifices and celebrations
Secrets hidden
Affection displayed
Years of fury and comfort –

Family life lived
in the living room
