Rookie (September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

Empty


There are trees
people
songs constructed
by lives
filled with heart break
tragedy
longing for a touch
but still empty

There are good times
floating about
at venues
hosting a passionate man
who knows how to use
a guitar
fronting a band
what a good time
but even if you were there
even if you were
that passionate man
but even...
still
empty

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
