Grey World

I found the remains
Of the day washed up
With the dry autumn leaves
Scraping the sidewalk
In the cold rain.

world01_400_02Bits of soul
Clung to the leaves
Sliding on the greasy
Pavement mingling
With cigarette butts.

I folded the damp
Newspaper and went
Back inside with the smell
Of eggs and bacon
Dancing in the air,
Staring out through
The window watching
The world through
Rivulets of rain trickling
Down the dirty glass
With the sad grey sky
Pressing down
On the desolate
City streets.

The dog barked,
And the frying pan
Popped as the branches
Scraped the side of the
House in the wind,
I sat up in the chair looking
Out at the sad grey world
Though dirty windows
Sucking it all in.
