To ForgetIt's been sitting in the dark too long -To Forget9 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Among the dust, the abandoned toys,
and decaying boxes of forgotten dreams.
What do the rotting eyes see
in the gloom cast by a too-high window?
The spider-leg shadows of tree-branches,
the shattered-glass pattern in the dust,
a shadow scratching the window pane in the depths of night.
A montage of childhood horrors,
a memory lurking deep inside hollow pupils,
In solitary dreaming there is beauty.
And, who knows what beauty lies behind lifeless eyes?
A red rose in a crypt of frost,
the cruel grace of a prowling cat,
