Three Men Walking


Three men walking
Along the roadside
One after another
Wearing weird caps
In the dark

The town asleep
Some traffic
Street lights
And cold

Silhouettes
Trees
Roots whirling
Some visible others hiding
Some past events

The three men
Talking to themselves
And to each other too
Smell of hey
Some old friends

The three men
Still walking
One after another

A young boy
Runs past
All covered up
Without socks

A cat with long tail
And a dog
Waiting for something to eat
Common cause

The boy
Collects rotten fruit
In a bag
Whose cause?


The three men walking
A young girl
Beaten
Cries
Selling flowers
A man with a gun
A watchman
Destroys her flowers

Water
Red colored
And black too
Going down a small stream
Blood is red
And water black

The three men
Further, into the darkness of the streets
Their caps
Water enters the shoes
Cold water
And black water

And then into the restaurant
The three men
With weird caps
Some people in the restaurant
Long faced small faced
Tired and worried

The three men
Looking from above a cabin
Some boys
And burgers
Water and tea

A common cause

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
