Witness

The plastic bag
Gently swirled
In the breeze
Floating upwards
With the leaves
In silence in the
Desolate street
Under the
Twinkling
Stars.

witness01_400Swirling upwards
Over brick walls,
Chimneys and rooftops;
Over steaming lamps
And curled up tramps,
The rustling trees
And surging seas.

The
Blinking lights
Fading away,
With the window
Shutters flapping
Against the walls
And the swaying
Shop signs, as the cat
Arched and rubbed
Its back against
The window pane
Watching the
Rapping rain.

The transparent
Plastic bag floating
Above the world
Surveying it all.

To be that solitary
Translucent bag;
Soaring,soaring,
Sailing in bliss;
A witness to
The beauty
And the
Desolation;
A witness
To it all.
