LOST VOICES (THE ASYLUM)

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

Cool and crackling
dry trees
bathed in shadows
faded bricks colored
in spraypainted belligerence
empty overgrown roads
leading to still more desolation
sad, dusty hallways
colder than the tomb
hazy light
filtered
through broken windows
that cancel time
hollow wind howling
the silence of ghosts…

A place beyond time
in the Great Swamp,
lost voices on an island,
forgotten…
