The Entrances

The entrances to an house,
big or small being from all directions,
the one in the porch with platforms
on either side, a place of reception,
opens out for men.

The women go through
the side which is as big
as the main, with a patio,
in the chambers they enjoy their privacy
meet the relations and friends.

The back door serves as a way
to the cooks, maids, staff
who engage in chores,converse,
rest after work.The other doorway
remains closed most of the time .

This exit opens during celebrations
and other engagements, a procedure
one of a taciturn understanding
followed with discipline.
Emphasizing social distancing
self enforced limitation.
