Plastic descent

Our house has plastic window sills
they are smudgy white
and some degrees short
of being in place

Our house has a plastic front door
it’s smudgy white
and glue didn’t fix
the letter box

Our house has a plastic back door
it’s smudgy white
and makes ventilating the house easy
by being crooked

Our house has a plastic window
it’s smudgy white
and always closed
it misses a handle

The plastic was once bright
shiny and new
easy maintenance
and en vogue

Now it’s smudgy white
crooked, ajar
easy maintenance
and sad

Written for #NaPoWriMo day 24, inspired by this prompt: to write a poem that features walls, bricks, stones, arches, or the like.
