Yesterday’s World

I walked through our

Local graveyard

Wondering how many

Long forgotten souls

There must be there

Each forever lying in

His pill~shaped abode

Not even an echo anymore

Of what once was.

A long ago

Blizzard Of Thoughts

Anachronistic raiment,

Mannerisms, and speech

Now irrevocably frozen

And unavailable to us.

Not one will ever again

Answer a call to school,

Prayer, or work.

An army of broken

Hearts, memory lapses,

Frustrated Hitlers and Napoleons

And no one even notices

Any of them.
