In my childhood home
When all the strangers are away
I lay on the same slate floor in the basement
I feel the glass in the windows running down
I see the waves time has formed between the panes
I watch the dust circling in sunbeams
some bits of hair from my old dog?
Rover ?
Landing on me
Pushing me
deeper
Deeper into the ground

    • You reckon if I went by there and asked to go lay down on the basement floor that they would let
      me?
      No need really. I can see what I described here very clearly.
      Rover was a big Collie. You would have liked him.
      Thanks!
