    Flat for rent
    Flickering embers from stubbed out cigarettes

    Are the only light in the flat

    The ash and rising smoke

    Colour the walls black

    Drip. Drip drip. Drip drip. Drip

    The leaky faucet sings

    In lieu of a company

    My only friend in the evenings

    No radio, no TV, no electricity,

    And light bulbs smashed

    I wince as I pick from my bare feet

    The shards of broken glass

    Black mould and green fungus

    Are the only things that grow

    Their spores clog up my lungs

    My breathing it…slows

    Not seen from the advert

    The character of this place, it’s true

    It just read:

    'Flat for rent, room for two.'

    it sounds delightful
