He says it’s one of his least favorite jobs as an electrician, this hanging new lighting fixtures. In an old house, there’s not much wire left in the ceiling to work with. Forget moving around on the ladder. And you’d rather not rip away any plaster if you can help it.

My poems on the challenges of renovations, repairs, and relating as a husband are collected as Home Maintenance, a free ebook at Thistle/Flinch editions.
