All the unpaid bills
Wrestling interest rates
While past due dates wait with their boutonnieres
And the slumping bike
Strangled with a lock that we forgot the combination to

The old house drinks everything we hide
And hums sad songs that keep us up all night
With the doorknobs loose and the pipes that burst
With the fuses blown and the taps reversed

The calendar requests a meeting to discuss the time we waste
When would be good for you?
And the sidewalk cracks spell the way back home
In one uninterrupted palindrome

The old house keeps all of our receipts
In envelopes secured with rubber bands
Oh, the blinking snow and the dark dispersed
With a smeary moon
With our taps reversed
