Unintelligible Susurration


Deserted


Walking in
The deserted town
With owls hooting
Their farewell

I feel like
I am the only person
Left in this place

Houses crumbling
In abandoned fields
With wilted flowers
And stray, hungry cats

The world
Has stopped spinning
Time is frozen in place
Yet I walk on
Only looking forward

They've spared me
To save themselves
And not feel
What it is
To be in a desert

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
