Many of the abandoned homes I've visited are full of such an unbelievable amount of garbage that one has to wonder if people aren't coming out to them to illegally dump it. In this home, the first floor has collapsed into the basement and the second floor will probably be giving way within a year. In the rift between the two floors, the sleeves of dozens of coats and shirts dangled with water pouring down them, reaching out as though they longed to return to the earth.
