Vancouver specialSeeking unique answers to specific questions:How much land will be allotted, and to whom?
What can't I afford?
How will we make the mortgage?
How may I fit my family into the equation?
Can I make myself less abstracted?
Maybe we should look elsewhere?
We want beauty, not failed attempts:
To be in the house and have it be of us.
Grace of a front lawn, sophisticated stucco,
Glass that glitters back reflectionOf ourselves, but reversed.
All the wood is hidden behind siding
And drywall wallboard. Echoing wall.
Can't see the trees for the city.
I don't feel special.
