hardwood floors
made of softwood
100 year old
douglas fir

sanded, scraped, filled, stained, sealed

attic gutted
abated, re-insulated
a shell of our
eventual bedrooms
head room enough
for dream ghosts
to dance

paint, paint, paint
scrub, scrub, scrub

and door trim
ever so carefully

a project a day
keeps poetry away

lights, new fixtures
some more prying trim

need to stop on way home
from day job to pick-up supplies
for night job:

2d finish nails
12/2 Romex wire
5 20A grounded outlets
6 pack Alaskan Oatmeal Stout
