A walk in the silence of October


no sirens wailing, and vehicles driving by…

no knife-wielding, angry neanderthals

nor noisy porches, crowded with girls and guys

and glimpses in, glimpses back into time

when we could breathe wherever we went

and the day’s remnants did not smolder like an unhealthy remnant...


still, sudden silence beneath so tall, these spires of tree

so still, so peaceful…where my heart would rather be
