A Clean Sweep

I have swept up a half inch of rust from the floor of my first floor appartment that has settled here over the last 50 years. The steel joists above still seem very substantial though. The crittal windows are not so much rusted shut, as rusted away. The reinforcing wire in their mostly broken glass has rusted too. A few seabirds have come to Seaforts to die. Feathers, bones from wings, feet and head, litter the floor.
