The Ancestral Home 1-6 by Matthew Antonio

The Ancestral Home #1

In the room
of weeping tables,
the desk lectures
on a range of topics
in its slippery pitch.


The Ancestral Home #2

In the room
of vagrant trees,
they huddle around
small fires and watch
themselves dwindle.


The Ancestral Home #3

In the room
of infinite showers,
the small boy wonders if
the man with a large knife
will find him.


The Ancestral Home #4

In the room
of thick light,
the man with a shining
head moves slowly
to the blind door.


The Ancestral Home #5

In the room
of empty frames,
the missing guests gather
to reminisce about
empty white spaces.


The Ancestral Home #6

In the room
of soft walls,
we press ourselves into them
to escape the bright
surgical equipment.
