While I Was With Her

the bathroom light switch broke
it peeled off the wall below 
the living room window 
the damp advanced 
it rotted the wooden window frame in the living 
I washed with less frequency the female dog 
the kitchen range started to leak gas
it cracked the plastic knob for the front left stovetop
it had a slit the toilet lid that I didn't replace
I still pee seated on the cold sanitary 
while I was with her I didn't mend anything.
