June 14, 2018

this old house
has no power,
plumbing, nor
heat. busted
windows are
duct taped
over or have
screens stapled
in place. water
dribbles from
a 5-gallon jug,
bagged ice in
coolers keeps
food fresh. we
charcoal grill on
the deck at night,
fire up an antique
coleman stove for
lunch & breakfast;
it's cantankerous,
sputters and flares
like a touchy old
man. speaking of,
i sleep in a bag on
foam pad, slumber
  so deep and sweet!
