Ever Green

Written by: Luis Martinez-Rivera

Ruined house,
the roof sitting,
on the floor.

The sky dark,
the chimney looming,
surrounded by-
ever green.

The taping rain.
The thick brush.
Creepying back.

Ever green,
pounding rain,
black skys-
as wet wood,
begins to rot.

The roof,
sitting on the floor,
enclosed and decaying.

Of the ruined house.
