Aside

empty lot

alone in a warm field
building razed, burned to the ground
soil has been tilled, turned over and torn
the good, the bad, all that’s left mixed
compost, fertilizer, rubble
plastic, glass, concrete
shards of a life scattered
until someone else comes along
and sees a plot of land to claim
a new life to build
a new home
a new family
dreams grow on rubble
