Pebbles

fistful of pebbles
that is what
you are
now
little curled memories
cold and hard

Questioning faith

hearken the old
sage wind’s lament
sweeping
dried blood
of slain doubts
heed its
purposeful celerity
venture prepared
this path lies
forsaken
for a reason

Inhabitants

The tremble in the heart.

The #sound of key and lock.

So many comings and goings.

Upstairs

Each is

unknown

until it is not.

Sound

i am but
a disquieting silence
enclosed in the
incessant clatter
of life
a sound
slowly dying

OLD

Old dirty man
pushed the cart
and rummaged
through trash can
Wore coat year round
Picked cans off the ground
Got run over
Saved kid in street
last heart beat
