Human Noise

Raw and abrasive
Rain soaked days mingled
With the wet leaves that clung
To the windows and your skin,
Your brown skin, in the wind
And the cold.

view_from_the_penthouse_400I remember that green
Pungent smell of the damp earth,
Drops of rain trickling down your
Solemn face.

The grey clouds
Wrapping around factory
Smoke stacks and the
Tangled jangled twisted
Metal spikes, razor wire
And doors creaking
Against the dull corrugated
Iron sheets flapping, empty
Metal shells stacked against
A mercury river, under the
Shadow of the mountain.

All gone, lost in
The raw and abrasive
Rain soaked days mingling
With cigarette butts 
That float along the
Street drains, and the
Wet leaves clinging
To the windows
Of the empty houses.

Their memories floating
Out to sea like scraps of paper
Though the sewer drains
And the piles of garbage;
Another empty can of beer
Crumpled and flung
To the pile as I
Listened to the
Television noise,
Our human noise.
