we spend time in abandoned homes looking for life.
giving second lives in words or images somehow
is important, interpreting what might have been
and the how it is that these houses are now vacant.
i have been back to this house now a couple of times.
this last time as the time before i stood with the 'debris'
quiet and listened to the wind move the torn curtains, coming up the stairs,
and through the fallen foundation.
there are still no answers
and even more questions.
