the ugly writers


I walk these floors, dirt, beneath bare feet, from many roads taken and the soles of passersby.


Dishes are piled high in the sink.
Papers strewn about
(My business for none to see).
Cobwebs frame doorways,
waving, familiarly, in silent clamor.

I walk these floors,
dirt, beneath bare feet,
from many roads taken
and the soles of passersby.

I pass books stacked high on chairs and tabletops.
(No more room on the shelves)
Ones I’ll always remember. Ones I chose to forget. Ones never to be read.

How funny it is to see this place
(This place where I live, rosy-hued),
when the switch is flicked.
God, this place needs a good cleaning!
