There’s a building I walk by to get to The Ranch. I think it used to be a crackhouse or something. The windows are spray painted from the inside and there’s a shady feeling about the place. Its been abandoned for some time and now nature has taken it over. There’s sumach growing out near the foundation and virginia creeper is climbing the fire escape. The doorway is overgrown with dandelions and goldenrod. These thistles were growing out of cracks in the sidewalk.
