Much less than daily doggerel - The Daily Doggerel

On Buying a New Old House

The waterstains on the wallpaper
map the places I haven't been.
And they never went there either.
This family that sat, here, on their land,
Until they died.

They left behind a photo
Tucked behind the mantel,
A family sitting on their stairs
Which I'll climb each day
Until I move...

to a place they'd never been.
