Fallen LeavesA Poem by Andy Ruffett
Look at the world before it disintegrates before your eyes.
This city is dead
What’s left of it
stands up straight
but will soon disintegrate
into the atmosphere
The leaves crackle against the ground
as the wind howls in the distance
For one man,
this place exists in the form of a memory
A memory of long ago
He smiles as he walks up the forgotten path
The dirt is so soft
The reminiscent days spent on the playground
rather than just the pile of rubble it is now
Every so often,
he’ll see a car drive by
or a person walking along the streets
Never stopping, only moving
Nobody wants to look past the city of rubble
and remember the days of happiness
No, they just throw on their raincoat
and shudder in the distance
