A House And A Home

By John Grey


A young married couple

move into a house.

It suddenly becomes a home.

But then they break up

and the home reverts

to being merely a house.


It remains a house

all through the divorce proceedings

until it’s sold off,

a new family takes residence,

and it becomes a home again.


In most instances,

a house is a home

but often a very confused one.
