This used to be an air force base. In 1948, it looked like this. Now, everything is crumbling, and rusting, and the wharves have holes as big as a coffin, and the curtains in the windows are the smiles of old women with crooked teeth. At night, when nobody is around and nobody is looking, I imagine it moaning and creaking and rustling with the wind. With a slow, slow crack, like velcro unzipping, these houses haul themselves up off the ground, like an elderly person getting up from a soft sofa, and they stand, looking out for a while over the sea.
