Someone lived

in that tiny fallen shack

nestle in mountain rock

where the wood

finally gave in

to the winds, shadows and rain

(When it rained.)

but how they lived

listening to rain

tap the tin in

tiny drum rolls,

and coyotes yelps

echo along black stones.

Yes someone lived there

fallen as it is,

someone called it home.
