The Vacant Chair
The yard is empty. Trees without new clothes, or even hand me downs, but they will be fine. The sun never fails them, unless there is wind or snow -- an excuse for the rake, shovel to help with the passing of time. If the wind would blow and touch the leaves or if more snow would fall there would be reason to be outside away from the silent house, the quiet sofa, his favorite chair now vacant.

The Neighborhood
The neighborhood is an old slut used by the mines and the factories and then deserted. Her breasts are mountains sagging behind clouds. Her loins are pocked streets, Abandoned buildings and a creek oozing slime. The offspring from the lust for quick money from the dust roam the streets and shout obscenities at the train whistling through the intersection.

White Walled Haripines
Wanted to line these walls With his essence Painted them pure white Wanted to skirt the circumference With trellised roses Poured an ornate gravel walk Wanted to polish the silver With recognizable fanfare Purchased standardware instead All I wanted went with the pee.
