1:13 in the Afternoon by Gerry Fabian

Within the soul

of an abandoned farmhouse

somewhere in the middle

of lost and forgotten

and about to be reclaimed.


Shattered doors

and skeleton key locks

broken rope

window sashes.


Sagging fireplace mantle

mourns

uneven random plank floors

and evolving moss coatings.


This was never

my always home

until now.
