There is a NO ENTRY sign
to the left of our building,
double yellow lines in front of it,
a KEEP CLEAR sign to the right.
We have patio doors for windows,
which have glass protectors
in front of them. Our windows have windows
so we don’t fall out.
We are level with the sky.
I don’t know how I got in here.
I see birds sometimes,
probably pigeons, sitting on the roof
of the furniture shop opposite,
no doubt working out ways to break in
and rest.
