As one of America's most haunted cities,
we are known for feng shui. Neck kisses.
Strings instead of switches. Basements
here are spacious, unfinished, and full
of grave flowers. Choral chambers. Nails
may be exposed on the steps. This city
is a stockyard, a video arcade. It used to
have a stronger smell. Doesn't come up
much. The dumbwaiters can accommodate
your infants for easy bedtimes. Just keep
the door clear of obstruction, pull firmly
and sing while you do it. Here, the trees
die and become newspaper. Here, a whole
home will hollow out like a cared-for skull.
