NaPoWriMo Day 9



Draft 2


time stands still
on these streets
where past
is ever present
and future
unimagined

repressive social values
passed father to son
expectations of submission
passed mother to daughter

passive faced buildings
belie eyes behind windows,
ears alert at keyholes,
where and the faceless who whisper
the shame of the fallen

time stands still
on these streets
where church bells toll

the virtue of the city

  1. I like 'ears alert at keyholes.'
