A crumbling mill in a New England village is the setting for this poem selected for the 2010 Poets' Guide to New Hampashire.




You lean in on yourself, like a dilapidated

And aged Yankee dowager, dirty white,                  

Grey and black, windows, panes

Violated, letting in all the elements can carry.


You stand in the middle of the village

And speak of better times, when prosperity

Was the watchword, and people were able to find

Work, live and grow, love and worship.


No longer…as you crumble all that remain

Are pensioners, antique dealers, a few poor,

And some dreamers, all trying to scrape a

Desperate life from an unforgiving New England hollow.

A very clear and expressive writing, Chip. I could see the destitution crawling up the back of these people, and how the hopelessness feels. Nice to meet you here on AuthorsDen, Chip, and thanks for sharing your writings.
