Old and New

Evening neighborhood walk passing
houses old mixed with houses new:
The one dirty, in disrepair;
the other big, bold, colorful,
protected by security systems.

In fifty years’ time, the new
will become just like the old:
Owners in ill-health and lacking
funds for repairs forced to sit
and stare and wonder, watching
new houses go up next door.
