Scoundrel Time

Suggested Improvements

The red flyer was posted by the elevator
On the ground floor by the mailboxes. Management
Has enlisted the utility company

To come install new more efficient shower heads,
Low-flow kitchen faucet aerators and other
Improvements that will save money.

The windows here look out into the red brick buildings
Standing on the other side of the gravel yard
With the other tenants’ windows looking in on you.

If you lean hard in one direction
In the very corner of the living room, you may
See a lonely patch of sky.
It is the missing jigsaw puzzle piece
God dropped and then forgot about.
