THIS PLACE

A name within dust, like leaves of past seasons,

lingers as if turning aimlessly in a stream,

trapped in corners of going nowhere.

 

A laboring fan jealously absorbs shadows,

twisting the shapes like sheep scattering.

 

A voice, a soulless breath, runs the air

in search of a place to settle.

 

Words tumble over the rocks of memory.

Songs speak of an era left behind.

 

Above, a gray blue theatre of substance;

hands of gods and hearts of mortals,

all of them searching for a place.
