Curtains Over Windowpanes

I don’t care to wash the windowpanes.

The glass can remain smudged

And I wouldn’t mind.

I don’t care to see through

To the other side.

There’s no need to see what’s out there

While I’m decompressing within.

Some days,

Looking out is fine.

But I take issue when I check

And oddly find

Fingerprints not on the inside

But on the outside of the glass.

At least the curtains are drawn.
