I came to town

I came to town poem by steven james humphreys

I parachuted down

barely missing the point on

the top of that skyscraper

looking out my window

writing on paper

I wonder

in this concrete town

what tomorrow

will bring?

feeling warmth of the sun

warm like a hamburger bun

the blue sky

so bright

but, today I’m dulled

sunset calms the night

I’m an ear of corn shucked

and kernels hulled

everyone else

is happy but me

why am I so dulled?

people trod along

believing they are free

doing what they do

so carefree

it is me who sees

the dark things

and

my

thoughts

turn

into

words

with

flapping

wings.
