Lives Lived In Them

What matters is not
The shine of the hardwoods
But the lives
Of the people
Who walk on them

Not the granite

Of the countertops
But the conversations
Over food
Prepared on them

Not the houses
But the lives
Lived in them

And this
Alone
Is why

Leaky roofs
Can still
Provide shelter

Crumbling houses
Can still
Be home
