looking away/

©2022 Michael Raven

my words fallen deaf
dead leaves from
winter trees clacking
raw bone bare breeze
grey painted with snow
in the cold below

words never believed
anyway, ignored street bums
loitering for warmth
in busy skyways as you
purpose-driven walked by,
trying as you might
to avoid catching my eye
