Remember Me

 

A few weeks ago I saw the remains

of a person who had been hit by a train.

 

They were scattered along the tracks-

and it was hard to imagine that these parts

had once been together

and that

they had been an entire single body

and that body

had a name and a place in the world.

 

Strewn along the tracks

is not a place in the world anyone should occupy

and nobody should be called by that name.

I Thought I Heard Screaming

I was out for a walk

and on my walk is a gully full of trees.

I decided to take a few pictures because it’s a pretty spot surrounded by scab of careless city planning and as I was doing that I thought I heard something.

It took me a minute, but I figured that all I was hearing were some noisy birds, some cars and a few barking dogs. But you know that wasn’t it, that wasn’t what I was hearing.

It nagged at me. I couldn’t figure out what that ‘almost’  sound was.

So to distract myself, I decided to check out the pictures I had grabbed and that’s  when I noticed that the trees in my pictures were covered with vines.

The vines are thick and nasty looking and I think, from what I’ve recently , they can kill those trees.

Now I think I know what I was hearing.

I think  I heard screaming.

DAILY ADDICTIONS: Weird

Dust Bunnies Take You!

RDP Monday: FUSTY

Used kisses

over used promises

the same old tales of passion

repeated mindlessly in a haze of cigarette smoke.

 

Over played love songs

from the 60’s

they use them to sell cars and yogurt now.

 

Fusty valentine sentiments

printed on faded paper and rotting under the refrigerator

the cemetery of lost memories.
