no vacancy

You don’t break into places.

That’s what you tell yourself.  But it was already broken – you’ll explain to the imaginary officer, who nonetheless shoos you off like a grumpy old caretaker… probably hates children.  Or it’s for your own safety.  Which it is, probably.

Industry housing – built for a boom and abandoned in the bust – row houses with the same frames but each distinguished by its particular state of guilt, like faces in a police line up.  What are they not telling you, each with its particular combination of frowning porch, bruised panes, and ill-shaven courtyard?  Mugshots.

Adjacent, a gutted apartment.  You wander the halls like the ghost of a real estate agent, extolling the virtues of each suite to interested phantoms.

Take your time, have a look around… find the one that’s right for you!

It’ll do says a voice.
