Old People's Houses

Old people’s houses are always full of clocks, steadily counting out their last hours on earth.

In one deceased estate there’s a hair-thin thread of spider’s silk hovering between a crystal angel and an ornament encasing carefully hand-pressed flowers.

I like to think that the crumbling mosaic of the bathroom floor bears witness to years of happy generations investing the home with life.

Dolls in the shed have seen better days but hopefully entertained small hands before they reached out for video game controllers.

It seems likely now that one of the lonely home’s next visitors will be a bulldozer with no regard for the lingering echoes of well-lived lives.
