Hermit Crab

The first adaptive
reusers before
it became trendy
to convert a shoe

box into,
well, anything

besides a shoe
box. A covered bridge
into an amphitheater
for Amish punk gigs. A Dairy
Queen into a library
that houses reels
of documentary films
and mysterious microfiche. Summer
mansion into convent into
venue for flying
garters and bouquets.
Do they still do that?

No vacancy
chain. Everyone’s hoteling

it now. Or, hot desking
without reservation.
Anything to protect the soft abdomen
from invaders.
