Lost Republic


This All-American farm house

Spartan, modest, practical

Yet showing tasteful flourishes, carved pillars

Detailed bay windows


Ambition restrained by reality

Republican truth trimmed with affecting accents

Design at the intersection of desire and prudence


Wasting in the passing time

It’s balance out of favour 

In this decaying age.
