A New Build on an Old Lot













our new house

so like the ones before

utterly still but for

even fiercer currents

of indifference charging

through long corridors

& spiral stairs winding `round &

`round the mausoleum-

like structure





each still

dead set against

getting anywhere

near one another

even accidentally




Ruth Sabath Rosenthal
