Streets are empty this summer.

At the playground swings move

only from the breeze.

Basketball hoops rust

in the asphalt schoolyard.

A bicycle lies on someone’s lawn:

a wheel turns slowly.

Where are the children?

Curtains twitch to inspect strangers.




I smile when I get feedback.

Click the button above and make me happy.
