leading upwards 
an old white stair

      shows us 
the way home

if that is home

   white paint
bought in bulk

shows things
a bit cleaner

than we thought

(white paint 
      shows dirt)

and then there are 
   the white stairs,

      a challenge
and for some of us,

a minor ordeal

   do not look 
for miracles,

      mostly they 
are misunderstood

but so welcome.
