Weekend of Presidential Election Adventure

IMG_20170424_225258We broke into a previously broken into house! That’s not illegal right? I love abandoned places and nature reclaiming man-made objects. It is scary in the city, exploring abandoned buildings because the chances are there are squatters, homeless or drug users. None of which look kindly on a skinny chick fumbling with her phone.

I’ve always wanted to go snooping around an abandoned house, who doesn’t? It is fascinating what people leave behind them. We found a calendar that had the year 2002 on it. 15 years that house stands alone. No laughter, no tears, no anger. Silence, except for the wind and rain sweeping through the open windows and doors.

Scarlet

Abandoned and alone
dodging a flung stone.
Attacked by canines.
Toms send valentines.

An old man hobbles
soon to join the angels.
Heart attacks have twice
tried to lead him to paradise.

He insists on walking
“Baboo!” he is calling.
She appears like a comet,
she is my friend, my Scarlet.

I thought she had a home,
that she enjoyed to roam.
But now I know the truth
it pains me like a sore tooth.

My home is open to her.
She always gives me a purr.
She shows me her belly,
but I am not that silly.

I will give her a bed
a warm place for her head.
Food and milk will be plenty.
Hugs and kisses given freely.

She can go as she pleases.
Knowing that when the rain bounces
She can dash to my apartment
never again feeling abandonment.
