all those toys

all those toys

A Poem by Scott Virtes
"

Something's lurking in the attic ...

"

all those toys
by s.c.virtes
---

forgotten playful things
grow bitter in the attic
restless like a trigger finger
staring plastic eyes glare
thru dusty moldy windows
knotted fabric minds shatter
at the touch of daylight
