a second poem today

Emblems and Oracles

Day, while busy with paperwork,
forgot the girl.
So she wandered looping cul-de-sacs
fronted by repetitions
of the same four split levels.

Ornamental humans
never looked her way
while they attended
various incarnations
of the same manicured god.

Bird calls and a high breeze through trees
were the only sounds
as she walked. The most painful,
for they spoke
and still she could not understand.

  1. I agree with marousia, it is a tender yet lonely image, I can clearly think of it as a photo in front of my eyes, I can see its colors and dreamy filters. Beautiful piece, Matt. =*
