Listening at the Monteleone ix: scratching the surface

To sustain a house, keeps
the chronology of inherit-
ance and refreshment with
markers which are substan-
tially irreplaceable, in
case anyone were to look
into them with that eye.

Then the next generation
is given to inquire, who
would have been account-
able for an acquisition,
a transformation, a con-
servation even contrary
to assumption, which in
time acquires a kind of
pride of placement, an
offer of entitlement.

It is the same with the
old shoebox of snapshots,
the letters no one will
survey, except as brit-
tle folds are vented - 
for the hastening scrawl
to speak of supple life.
