You might buy a house with walls
that look pretty good
You may not want to move the couch in yet
but you think about how
to paint.

So it is difficult to see the same room
after days of work
take two steps backward

Stripping it down to the skeleton
you expose every weak joist.

And when you find a KFC cup from the mid-80's
along with snack-size chip bags, a red sock, assorted rubble
and an old box of raisins
you may wonder
what's inside any wall?

Dry wall may cover decades of secrets
but today we usher them
into the light.

My wall uncovered...

sister - you rock so much! look at you!

creepy what you find behind drywall, huh?
i have drawn huge mermaids on walls before drywall covered them...i was thinking what would go through the mind of the person discovering them.

ewwww in regards to the old kfc cup.

Looking good ECM! I feel a (small) part of the renovation reading this entry and the last one, "Symbiosis"- wish I could be there to be a bit more helpful for the cause.

haha, we found comic books in our walls, my father-in-law professing his love for my mother-in-law, and a deck of dirty playing cards(yuck)
you just never know...
