Ode to the guest room

You are empty and so blue

Blue walls, blue carpet, blue corkboard, blue beadboard

And so empty

I thought at first:

A queen, and friends will come.

(And they came without the bed, and they slept on the floor.)

But out with the air mattress!

Empty guest room no more!

Two twins, so many options

Separate as daybeds, together a king.

One day a bunk bed?

Not empty, still blue

But where are the mattresses?
