I just finished reading this poem for National Poetry Day over at Tor.com and it was such an eerie but fascinating read. My interpretation of the poem is that the narrator is portraying a part of himself for the whole world to see, that his neighbors think they know who he is but in reality no one truly knows or understands him. I love how Gaiman uses a "house" as a metaphor for who we are as people and how no one knows what we have inside our houses, inside ourselves. It's such a great poem and I highly recommend you read it for National Poetry Day or just read it any ol'day! The artwork for the poem, done by Allen Williams is bizarrely intricate and matches the poem perfectly! Such a wonderful reading experience!
