The Current Normal – Row Housing

These photos were taken on May 19/20.

Row Housing

Out for a stroll, when what did we see?

Five colourful houses all in one row.

Too tiny for you and too cramped for me,

with no lockbox or realtor to show.

With no open house or sale sign in view,

no internet virtual tour or ad

and visits limited to one or two,

how could a sale showing even be had?

Buyers flocking by could make their own deals,

no contract to sign, not even in words.

With fly in service, there’s no need for wheels,

real estate listing is just for the birds.

    1. Real bird houses for sure. I have not been back to see if anyone moved in, though. Thanks for your kind words about my poetry. Having a great day, out in the garden all morning and then preparing Levain dough for a big bread bake tomorrow. Thanks for reading Aiva. Stay well. Allan

    1. Thanks for letting us know about the other cities with coloured row houses. I’ll just pop down and put the sold sign on the yellow one for you. Thanks for reading and commenting Marie. Allan
