Empty Lot


In this empty lot
Where children smile
And linger,
Empty, icy hands
Snatch with their vile
Fingers.

In these empty halls,
Where minds once grew
In trust,
A dead promise laughs,
An outrage new:
'We must'.

In this empty yard,
Where bones have broke
And healed,
It's itself, broken-
Though once it woke-
Can't feel.

In this empty face
(Empty heart
And mind
And all empty!)
Memories pass
And fade.
Where once it felt joy,
All that, at last,
Unmade.
