if we never had visitors our house 
would probably look awful much of the time 
a repository of piled items which 
unemployed ice skating officials or dust devils
could score
judge the whys and wherefores 
they alone understand how and why we are liable to finding orphan lids lurking
lying in ambush 
also coupons from the mail
saved before god 
and clots of scribing instruments abandoned where crosswords have been 
and fifty page informational circulars addressed to resident 
sundry items that my wife or i once believed would find a rightful resting 

but this evening we have visitors 
and ding dong here they come 
one says
the house is tidy
let's party
let's mess it up
