DILAPIDATED STRUCTURES
(12/4/18)


I look
out
of my kitchen
window

toward
the garage

its concrete
slab
is cracked
in multiple
directions

the roof
leaks

the electric
wiring

the plumbing
piping

the fixtures

are all worn

exposed

and although
the frame
still seems
fairly sound

I could
imagine
a good gust
blowing
the whole
thing
down

with
the fading
daylight
the kitchen light
creates
a reflection
in the glass

my image
superimposed
upon that
which I am
assessing

the garage
and I
are one

a comforting
idea
in a way

the eventuality
more objectified
when seen
relationally

hopefully
we both
hold on
through another
windy season
