31.5.11

Demolition




Drunk singing
singing
carries to the fourth floor
can't sleep with the window closed
or the blanket on
Shelves wait to be assembled
piles of books in order
The blinds cracked with paint
A shawl meant to be a seat cover
crumpled and failed
Posters leaned against walls
the nails carved out the drywall
The jade plant has mites
The spice jars empty
I can make you pop tarts
