Plastic on windows

To protect inside from out

Keeping outside out

Put up years ago

Meaning to be seasonal

Blocking winter’s chill

Yet in the springtime

It was found to keep out bugs

Who slipped in through cracks

So I left It up

Creating a secure space

Yet disturbing friends

Finally today

Down came the bedroom plastic

And the dust appeared

Ah ha, plastic’s role

Where the windows are concerned

Makes more sense than curtains
