heads can actually turn into homes

Majority of heads;

are either abandoned, demolished or for rent-

haunted and broken, trying to Band-Aid wounds

with cheap renovation.

This head;

though it may be all of these things stands proud,

shutters never drawn-completely,

it allows the breeze and dirty shoes to walk its floorboards

rattling cutlery into a jumble and creating

steam from a pumping heart that vaporizes out the chimney-

mildew feeds moss between rendered walls

an invitation for spiders to re-adjust cobwebs

and catch dusty flies hidden in draws

wearing wet dog smell whilst dancing on keyboards.

A head trying its best to give life to structure &

balance to temporary contained-ness,

This head; is home.
