Abandoned house, Yuma County, Arizona

In the cabin walls
something purrs by day and night—
a leftover dream.
~~ ~~ ~~
In the cabin walls
nasty little creatures hide,
scrabbling in the dark.
~~ ~~ ~~
cabin by the way—
kneeling before the threshold
a weary pilgrim
~~ ~~ ~~
in the cabin walls
a desiccated silence
wheezing tales of woe
