Silver Dollar Moon

March 2, 2009
Everything's tumbling and falling;
To the,
Ground
Ground
Ground

The silent buildings sneer;
They make no,
Sound
Sound
Sound

They ugly people pass and they,
Frown
Frown
Frown

My life reflects in a puddle,
Watch it
Drown
Drown
Drown

A bird flaps its wings;
See it,
Fly
Fly
Fly

A tiny little speck in the
Sky
Sky
Sky

The buildings tower above,
Oh so,
High
High
High

As a street corner girl lets out a
Sigh
Sigh
Sigh

She leans on one hip,
Shifting her position
and looks up at the bruise-blackened sky ,
taking her breath;
See it echo in her eyes,
the silver dollar moon and the stars wave goodbye
