After the Storm

The way the house is tipped
to the side
the damp basement revealed

webbed with discarded memories
the dead scoffs at me
tucked away as heirlooms

The spine cracked in half
The attic tipped sideways

What a sight to see
what a divine carcass for
our viewing pleasure Gawk Gawk Gawk

They could have tipped the house back up
instead, they made to wallflower

Not propped properly

Today the house is tipped
alone. Adored as if it’s just another hill
pass but not climb.
