My Living Situation
By Christopher Munroe
I’m looking for my fifth apartment of this year.
The first and third evicted me with illegally short notice, without benefit of warning or reason. The second and fourth were friend’s places, where I gratefully crashed while seeking somewhere permanent.
Hopefully five will be the charm, I could use a place to call my own. It’s been too many years since anywhere’s genuinely felt like “home” to me.
But there are times I worry that this is simply my lot in life, to move endlessly from apartment to apartment, never grounded.
Travelling without rest, never settling down.
The Artful Lodger.
