Floored

It’s been a long journey.

From rat chewed, splintered rotten planks

to the dark dusty piles with rat carcasses

to sand and then to broken brick

to the uniform snakes of underfloor heating pipe

to the space age foam block of insulation

to the thick dark slick of wet concrete…

It was warmed, it cracked a little, we worried, dust settled.

Another layer, like felt, and then click, click, click.

Our floorboards are down and the floor is complete.

Whirling and twirling in our socks on our dance-floor.
