Cotton Web

Cotton Web

Old, stinky paint over cardboard

Vents in place of windows 
The kitchen’s 
Sticky with oily cotton web
A likening to smeared prune paste and rust 
Bathroom’s packed with hair and dust 

Twin brick buildings hold hands and huddle up 

Lightening struck and dared split them up
Ears covered 
Eyes shut

Doors swing and squeak with pests 
Swift shadows 
And fast tails
Leave behind droppings
And opened nests
