This Old House

This Old House
by David Rittenhouse
This house is a piece of shit-
The roof has brown spots
From water damage and leaks.
The spiders have gotten on steroids.
They’re as big as my hand,
But pencil thin.
I kill them with my killing shoe,
Which has tongue guts from twenty bugs.
Roaches look like cigars,
And fly too.
Lizards get in through
Cracks underneath the sink.
Am I the only one that
Sees this shit, goddamn.
