Indifference streaming. Decades
of walls. Doors locked. Playgrounds
hold the future. Dogs bark at shadows.
Every fence leans with weak defense.
Overgrown empty lots have no memory.
Black suits and hats. Generations of
braided hair and faithful prayers. Winsome
songs slip to the background. Faces like
flowers bloom with smiles.
Rocks hold secrets. Trees fear lightening.
Rivers run their strength under the surface.
Rain refills all the edges.
The bones of dice rattle into a corner. Coins
strike the sidewalk. Men with rolled up
sleeves wait for the numbers to settle.
