it was 21 years ago today we moved into
our dream hotel (the Buscemi) builders
from hell overpromised
they delivered a house so full of water+mice
Noah couldn’t save us generations of roofers
carried 50k in $bills waterstained+murky from
one had a lonnnnng fingernail +snidelywhiplash
smile he cornered me one day on the parapet
there have been deaths too
we are both parentless + one sibling-less friends
have/are succumbing/succumbed but the light in
this house quavers +beggars resurrection
..i begin to weary of this motif..
