An Ode to a Sewer Fly

sewer fly mum revised

You graced us with your presence
You dotted our walls and floors
You made yourself at home

  2. […] America that week and I felt wrecked. A glass would fall out of the cupboard every single day, the basement had tiny little annoying flies everywhere, and the last straw was when the locked dishwasher opened behind me and I almost broke my leg […]
