The Matutu House by Tetro

Matutu House

It’s the last house on the last street
It has “ma”, Japanese space-time

Way to turn off the city
And turn on the woods
The forest

The Matutu House
It’s simplicity
Polished slab floor

Closet without door
Reduced size
Magnified by nature

And by the good view
The Matutu House
Has a stone ramp

Childhood memories
Song of birds and people
Union in separate rooms

Has a pool

Fireplace, bonfire
And a veil of rings
In a natural garden
Full of orchids
Poem written by the resident
