There's such a striking, compelling story told here, made even better by being put to a a really nicely put-together poetic form. I especially love the third stanza.

Marvelous play you have given us here. Warm details of daily life together now in plain view. I, too, adore stanza three! My POTD vote!

you weave a wonderful tale, Chris.
which only goes to reinforce the notion
that a play must still go on, no matter
the grime piling on the blinds or the amount
of spectators peeking in.

Excellent performance throughout this piece Chris,
"culinary domestica", says so much and the final stanza is brilliant...

An excellent narrative poem that teases our voyeurism while warming the heart in an unexpected way - well-done, buddy! d:-)

A warm and captivating view of apartment living! Oh, that all views would be so pleasant!

there's no better art form, I think...this is a great read...especially for those of us who love to peek into bare windows while driving by -- to see how others might be living inside (in the interesting way, not the creepy way!) :)

I feel so safely human now. Everything about this poem fills me with oxygen. Like an open window, your writing brings fresh air and a divine peek into the extraordinary features of ordinariness.

You had me peering curiously into that portal from a few thousand miles south, thinking how familiar the scene is, wondering if those other observers knew just who was the star of this stage and not really knowing the well-lit imagination of the producer-director. Fun read, Chris. You took the everyday and made it dramatic and fun at the same time. Thanks, buddy.
