Home Sweet Home Again

Project Description

Homeless | Nancy Lorimer

I’m finally ready to build my dream, but
Long-snouted bears sniff around the concrete blocks
I’m finally ready to build my dream, but
The framing timber’s locked in ice from last night’s
Storm
I’m finally ready to build my dream, but
All the shingles bobbed down river
I’m finally ready to build my dream, but
The tarpaper, shredded, skirls in the wind
I’m finally ready to build my dream, but
The windows shine with a stranger’s face
