houses in motion


so it begins

the descent into the world

of debt

i kept it at bay

as long as I could

but now

there’s a “sold!” sign

draped across a house

not too far

from where we are now

just 2 days

before our 1st anniversary

and really

after all these lost weekends

spent searching

it’s a relief to be able

to move onto the next stage

i signed my name

on an assembly line of

arranged pages

“sign here, please”

“and here, too”

and the nice couple

selling the place

gave us a bottle of bubbly

to take home and celebrate with

it’s yet to sink in


it’s more just

a sense of relief

than anything

but there’s

a newer


list of things to do

waiting for tuesday

no rest

for the wicked
