Forgotten

FORGOTTEN

The clock upon the wall is broke,

listless hands no longer mark time.

No urgency encroaches here.

Old ghost stories-- memories of memories,

wrapped in brittle, flaking parchment

entombed in a dusky one bedroom.

Mute telephone, faded pictures cloaked with dust,

a mob of brochures and flyers gather at the door-

to bear silent witness to her final voyage.
