Creeping Spurge

She keeps her shades drawn
So she can't see
The old brick building
Where he used to be

Friend of her husband
Got in a car
Together they drove
Down to the bar

The road was icy
The car hit a tree
Both men died
In the debris

To her husband
Their affair was unknown
Now they are gone
She's forever alone

Old weeds and vines
Cover the house
The attic
Thick with dust
