dcmarti1 Posted March 23, 2019 Share Posted March 23, 2019 On a narrow porch in Texas, Four decades after his departure, Not even the ghosts have remained To trespass in empty, damaged houses. Four decades after his departure, His mind purposes only three: The idyllic childhood of trees and bikes Falling short for agendas and manifests. Not even the ghosts have remained; The ghost of his blacksmith great grandfather, Who shoed the horses of the timber baron, And whose marker is sunken and crooked. To trespass in empty, damaged houses, To trespass the vacant elementary, To trespass the auctioned-off junior high: Pranks would be criminally redundant On a narrow porch in Texas.
