The Cornerstone of Strong Communities

The last house
          that was not a home
but a moan                          in an unlit night,

White walls
     polished mouse skulls
basement a swamp
     where the children           once played           –
–          what use                pants without pockets?
–          what use                muted earth?
–          what use                populism of lies?

The last house
          that was never a home
but a groan                     from settling right,

Cracked foundation…

     are they out of their minds

                         …they’ll never get what they’re asking
