Chippy

While 'chippy' commonly means 'prostitute', it can also mean 'cheap' or 'ill-tempered'. I also like to think of my radiator as a hooker.


Chippy (2/2)

Moisture - radiator steam - peels the walls
leaves rings of black on the wood floors

It hisses at us - sits dumbly in the corner
behindthe sofa making soup of the varnish
