    The spirit stays

    Kitchen tongue tingles from the bug spray rain
    Golden cobwebs on shimmering silica ceiling stars
    Square linoleum tiles cover over well walked floors
    Cracked plaster as the house shifts underweight
    Original caramel wainscoting, doors and molding
    Simple antique locks of brass verdigris keep watch
    This is our tenemant home, urban and near perfect
    But vsitors as many families raised and past prior
    The spirit stays where love and heartbreak dwelled
    We too will exist in the deep marrow of time here
    Looking on in support of that struggle to survive
