Dumb & Dull - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

going back to
old places is depressing

your childhood friend
is dead
and the river where you
has become another
foul smelling canal

you walk some more
and no one remembers you

the woman who cooked for
the family
died as a spinster

the church is still alive
but the bell has been changed

the one you can hear now
is pretty
dumb and dull
sounding like you
who insists that
there is something
there still worth
coming back
