No way for anyone to look in,
to tell if it was light or dark inside.
No way to tell if things were quiet and still,
or if the house was about to explode.
If one wanted to see inside, they could,
but only if they had a key.
And that key, of course,
came from the owner.
And she was picky,
some would say too picky.
But why would anyone allow someone inside their house?
