Slow and Steady

Chest unzipped heart exposed but slow and steady going towards town. Eyes witness cheaply made souvenirs in window fronts sound of traffic dreary miss farm already. Idling back on dirt road reminded of simple times no mobile phone or rush life at a hush. Chest unzipped thoughts like colorful handkerchiefs a desire of old days mingles in the air.

until you disappeared

On spring mornings, hot summer afternoons Autumn moments, cold winter nights I wrote of you until you disappeared. I’m thinking of putting a road sign up saying ahead is where you drop off the earth.
