Dawn was brought to the small town
Like a dust cloud
Of change
It hissed through cracks in windows
Doors
And walls
It made the candle flames
Shiver
It piled in drifts
Against doorways

The day brought no relief
From the scent
Of a new beginning

The sun,
Which once warmed bare backs,
Felt cold,
Old
And distant
Yet the empty playgrounds
Still withered under its empty
Stare

The joyous reunion
Of friends
Enclosed in
Bricks
And glass

Summer was over
