Taylor Wimpey’s Denizen Ghost Flats

Taylor Wimpey’s Denizen Ghost Flats

Not a window was broken

And the paint wasn’t peeling,

No balcony sagged –

And yet there was the feeling

 

Once past reception

And out of the hall

These were the homes of

No one at all

 

No one who breathed

Nor laughed, nor ate

Nor said “I love,”

Nor said “I hate.”

 

Yes something walked

Along the stair

Something that was

And wasn’t there.

 

And that is why keys

Wait at reception

For apartment owners

Who’ll never collect them

 

For something walks

Along the stair –

Something that is

And isn’t there.
