Exterior. walls.

Moving.

slowly. with depth.

A hole in the chain-link.

Climb through.

Here. the brittle.

Here.

The yellow grass grows as well.

The spaces between.

The breathes between.

Try to conceal.

Water will. make things.

clearer.

Water will. make.

undone.

Water.

against the curb.

Tips of fingers.

underneath.

The passing of.

underneath.

Next door.

Molly watches.

Sun fighting between.

a cacophony of leaves.

Embrace.

the sidewalk.

Find fingers.

Pull. up.
