Haiku Group House Painters

i.
The paint rollers hiss
white strokes across the ceiling
Fresh, right from the can

ii.
The painters have set
a rhythm of pure white strokes
to radio songs

iii.
The painters apply
the white paint while the cat cries
at the basement door

iv.
The painters shouting
above radio music
discussing haircuts

v.
Home disassembled.
Furniture covered. Walls bare.
Painters here today.

vi.
The bucket of paint
divided into brushloads
regroups on the wall

vii.
The frayed walls need paint
to make amends for aging.
Brush on a thick coat.
