......

Outside, a cold wind blows down silent streets


Lined with cars, silent themselves, windows


Glazed over, sightless eyes beneath cataracts


Of frost, and snow veils follow crooked


 


Sidewalks made uneven by the roots of trees


That have risen from beneath over the coarse


Of times passing, to form heaving rivers of


Crumbled cement that nobody walks upon


 


This day, unless perhaps those dancing veils


That shift and swirl are spirits, lost souls


Compelled to wander here in search


Of whatever secrets lay hidden behind


 


Closed doors and darkened windows, small


Houses made into silhouettes by a blanket


Of rolling fog, and perhaps it is not the wind


That moans against my silhouette, but the


 


Crying voice of desperation, pleas unheeded


As they make their way from house to house


Across yards of frosted grass that look like


Gaping mouths filled with hungry white teeth.


 


 


END


 


“Veils”
