Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Stores secured, status shows green.

black winds bite
     empty endings spill
           in sewers,
               old vows wilt
                        dissolving life's tenderness ` ` `
                             hearts sliced in rough stone

          rainfall parts breaths
             ravens wearing dying  cloaks ` ` `
                        pale stardusts, farewell

Allergic to the bright light
Hiding from myself....
