industrial evolution

industrial evolution

like a serenade to the
modernist,
seattle-based
miller hull architects
rendered steel and glass,
all velvet smooth
into this single family home.

the serious edges
were tamed inside, where
the organic beat of pattern
and shape—sinuous rugs,
kicky, ta-dah! wallpaper
and a dining table plucked
from a fable—

melted the contemporary
gaze of this strong, silent type.

relaxed, but confident,
the new romanticism
of fire and ice
is no misguided
boy band ballad.

this is another kind of fever.
