A family saga of the decline and fall through its two remaining members, a father and his sixteen year old son, set outside the burnt remains of the former family home.
I saw it fifty years ago
Before the thunder-bolt had riven it,
Green leaves, ripe leaves, leaves thick as butter,
Fat, greasy life. Stand there and look,
Because there is somebody in that house.
