      Paint is peeling from this place
      Falling like toxic leaves; with deceptive grace
      Wood-rot and loose screws; Stripped wires and a blown fuse
      Who could live here

      Glass windows with a permanent haze
      No chemical strong enough; sit back and let them glaze
      Vents to the crawlspace cry; their metal frames, dull and dry
      Would you live here

      Tree branches scrape the wood
      Clawing at it daily and nightly; thrashing it good
      Broken step waits to trip; there’s radon rain – take a sip
      Nobody would live here

      Upstairs, there’s crumbling plaster; a cold dirty dim disaster
      Where no sun shines through a lone skylight
      Where every night is dark and every day is night.
      I live here

      Sounds like the house in The Money Pit.

        Indeed. lol The winter beat the shit out of my house (not THAT bad) and beat the crap out of me too. I was down, man. But it’s good now. Fucked up time passed and now I can laugh at my poem 🙂

        Lol. No, my name inspired the poem. Cuz plaster the girl was so not okay. My house (me) is strong again. Yay!

      We had a pretty rough winter down here in Atlanta, too. I had to put on long pants a couple of times.
