Anne Rice, New Orleans, Louisiana, the Vampire Chronicles; Lestat.
Is this house even in Louisiana; even in the States?
Rarefied living; or haunted house.
Family home; or abandoned derelict.
Pet cemetery in the backyard; or bones of generations past.
What do you think as you pass by?
Eyes to the pavement, feet pushing through leaves; dropped blooms.
Do you look up and wonder, as do I?
Sniff the air; peek through windows; peer over the fence.
Rattle a fence post; kick at the base.
Shake the tree to drop leaves in your face.
