Last Wards

Last Wards

paint is fading
on all the walls

and the roof is 
full of holes.


outside my window,
sunlight paints
landscape on a
realistic screen.

today i can't go out,
so it may as well by
all imagined,

a creation of some
great intelligence
we barely understand.


then there's that 
crumbling building,
with its own stories.

i feel a connection
with a past that 
never was mine,

real nevertheless,


paint is fading
on all the walls

and the roof is 
full of holes.

      I’m OK. That hospital was shut down many years ago. I was never a patient there.
      As far as I know, it was a tubercolosis hospital for years. When it was no longer
      needed for that, it was turned into a mental hospital.

      Now it id derelict, no longer needed. I expect that the bulldozer will arrive some day
      soon.

      Stay well!

      It was used as a TB hospital until they no longer needed it. Later it was used as a mental hospital. I have never needed it for either purpose. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!

      Stay well!
