It’s a mysterious and evocative building. Obviously inhabited by its own soul – I doubt whoever owns it can do much more than observe the affairs that swirl around this property of theirs.
Beings come and go in the purple hours before dawn visiting someone great who lives and watches from the top stories.
The decaying posters along the sidewalk unfold at night to become the wings of creatures who fly off.
Windows are blackened but faces appear and disappear without a sound.
You’ll feel a tug at your pant cuffs as the breeze from an invisible overcoat curls down the wall, levels out and goes past you, making its way down the sidewalk.
