the slathered-on plaster
is cracked and broken near the bottom
revealing a wave of aged, criscrossed stone.
and the bricks, sized medley, house
weathered nooks and hoary crannies.
grasses stretch from the gravelly earth,
licking higher surfaces, brushing away
fragile, ancient crumbs with the breeze.
shrunken, splintered gray wood frames
six screened squares, opaque and uniform,
and forms one solitary, tall rectangle.
tiger-striped, never painted.
