Bringing It Home

at


Houses

Houses
Are balloons now
They inflate
And conflate
Boom and burst

Houses
Are horses now
We speculate
And place our bets
A lifetime’s work
On coral haven estate
House no 2

Houses
Are flat pack now
Allen keys and spare screws
Starting lovers tiffs
Since 1998

Houses
Are everything now
But homes

    Trouble is no-one said this when they were filling their boots during the last housing boom.
    Eeeeeeeeeeeeveryone partied.
    Good times.

    Houses
    Are big square yokes
    With holes in ’em
    Called doors, and windows
    If you’re lucky
