Kit Kelen #523 - lived in

lived in

any metaphor does

in a house
one thing after another goes

a bird might take a tile for crumb
or an ant carries down something loose

we're party to this vanishing
generations this way
the same with us all

always arriving and ready to go
even guests are the three day fish

but in the end you forget the address
you were always living up to

we all go to pieces
or blazes

and best
it's only ever crumbling to dust
you'll ask
'what house am I?'
