Absolved

they’re showing through the walls

creaking unannounced

splintering the plaster

under the weight

of displaced years

forgone promised ages

prosperity dissolved in mere

cabinets tossed into the dumpster

fire

set alight with hope

fanning the flames and asking myself

if there are s’mores in the future
