Derelict Dreams

Derelict dreams
cement blocks of somedays
spray-painted with
someone else’s profane sidesteps
fields where we once were children
kicking balls and blowing dandelions
cobwebbed with progress
transportation’s advancements
leaps & bounds
to be coned, construction zoned
mind closed to through traffic
neck craned, hanging out the window
staring at horizon like a car crash
all blood & broken glass
cannot look away
whiplash snap
stopped dead on the tracks
