Heed the Signs and Get it Checked

Your house is sick, what can you do?

Have someone take a look for you, 

and get yourself to a hotel

until all things can be made well.


Leave nothing where infection hides.

Move goods and chattels all outside.

If something’s found, then seal the door

and stay away a few days more.


Remove what’s rotted far away,

and scrape all that is to remain.

Begin again from what is left,

for life in spaces that are blessed.
