Empty Cases

Haunted
Ghosts
Of
Abandoned
Dreams
Live
In
Empty
Cases.

img_0939_once_there_were_forests_400Sliding
On
Luggage
Racks
On
Steamers
That
Sail
The
Seven
Seas.

Stamped
With:
'Hotel
Astoria
Bruxelles',
Or
'Hotel
Russie
Geneve'.

In
The
Golden
Years;
Of
Bogart
And
Bacall;
Sartre
And
Camus.

White
Dinner
Jackets,
And
Silk
Dresses;
And
The
Flowing
Gold
Brocades,
Mingling
With
Mint
Juleps
Under
The
Silver
Moon.

Couples
Swaying
On
Deck
Dancing
To
The
Strains
Col
Porter
Wafting
From
The
Crackling
Gramophone.

In
Those
Classic
Black
And
White,
Golden
Years.

How
Much
Have
We
Lost?

Our
Charm,
Our
Dignity,
Our
Warmth,
Our
Humanity.

In
Our
Checkered
Nihilistic
Heartless
World.

How
I
Yearn
For
A
Return
To
Those
Golden
Years.

The
Age
Of
Happiness
And
Romance.

When
The
Soul
Of
Mankind
Was
Just
A
Little
More
Innocent,
A
Little
More
Charmed.

In
Those
Long
Lost
Golden
Years.
