I felt the wind
Furious and cold
Buffeting against
The grey sky
And the chill
Sinking deep.

summer_storm_400The shadows
From the bare trees
Danced on the naked earth
Like ragged claws
And the dead leaves
Curled blown scraping
The ground.

The worn window shutter
Flapped against the walls,
And the raindrops splashed
The climbers trickling
Into the cracks that
Widen every year.

I walked alone down the street
And saw the passing of time
And the houses that fell
Into disrepair;
The shuttered shops,
Cafes and gas stations;
Abandoned, lost
And unloved,
Orphans of
A dead town,
I remember
This street.

The darkness fell
And I walked alone
With my memories
Tumbling along the ground
With curled crunching
Leaves and the night wind
Blowing the lapels
Of my jacket flapping
Against my cold cheeks
Under the twinkling stars.

I walked with my hands
Dug deep in my pockets
And felt the wind
Furious and cold
As it buffeted
The memories
Of a dead town.
