It was a basement apartment.

Concrete steps without a handrail.

Faded blue chipped plaster walls.

There was an aroma of stagnate steamy

air and garbage.  Light

bulbs hung from brown wires.

Echoes of dripping water. Heavy

footsteps in the hallway above.  Pipes

ached from sending hot water to the

floors above.  The furnace growled with

Energy. Wires emerged between beams

and openings in the walls.  A metal door

slams shut, waking the dead while

stirring the rats.
