Leave Shoes Outside Please

Poem By Mary Havran

build me a poem like a Japanese house
stark black words set against
crisp white paper wall

elaborate phrases eliminate
rhetorical excess dismiss
shoes left outside

clear minded
direct
pure

Very Good. A ten! Sincerely, Connie Webb
In my country we do leave shoes outside (keeping home nicely) . this is a clean poem too.
Fine. Simple. Elegant.
