CRACKED WALLS
(12/30/14)


the interior
plaster
is compromised
around windows
and doors
of this
old house

jagged
ragged
character lines
radiate
from the corners
of most
openings

at 75
I guess
that this structure
has earned
its blemishes

I've been
here
almost 12
of those years

the longest
that I've resided
in any
one place
in my life

by twice

I'm 55
and showing
many blemishes
of my own

we seem
a likely
match

I think
that I'll
stay

to settle
into dilapidation

into death

together
