expression of interest sought (apply within)

is a woman’s touch
in a place that’s showing signs
of falling into age
and disrepair

certain rooms
are in need of dusting and a tidy-up
to make them shine again

the fluttery of subtle webs
in each suggested breeze
is unattractive
indicating that too long has passed
without an intervention
and requiring remedial activity
as a matter of some urgency

the owner
a bachelor of good intent
whose execution lets him down
is seeking now
for expressions of interest
from applicants of quality
who will pay due attention
to the detailed ministration
of a woman’s touch
to those areas identified
as most in need
of rejuvenation

apply within
