Vacant

one by one windows blink
whitewash, words written inside,
backwards, so few can make
out the “hell” and the “damn.”

footprints in old cement, the
ages walked this way,
when downtown meant white gloves
for the ladies and a snap-brim for the men.

summer heat pulverized tourists, and
little children went to watch “Bambi.”

Long ago a job could be found,
if only pushing a broom, dust
to dust into the streets.

My mother was the oldest of ten children. They were dirt poor, but one of her childhood memories was of her father taking her and one or two siblings to see Bambi! Thank you so much.

This reminds me of the old Texas movie theater. We miss it like an old fiend. Well done!
