One Hundred Word House

A Glimpse

We are nearing thirty, cutting corners to save, hoping to one day have a place of our own.

Our scale of what’s ‘acceptable’ disintegrated over the years as we became more desperate, collecting housemates and depts like trophies along the way.

I find myself in a moment of clarity, cringing at the mould-green carpet chewed to bits by moths as I pile random items in the fridge together until it resembles an acceptable meal.

The cracks in the walls and stains in the paint are our only art and we pray the landlord remembers they were there before we were.
