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.
