A Place

from by Evan Kelley



I know a place...
where the seasons change...
and the grass is just as green this time around, but the kids have grown up and moved out.

The trees are taller now.
Maybe they've lost some bark.
Maybe the neighbors lawn is overgrown and you remember when it used to be proud yard.

Things always change...
someday anyway.
How could you be so naive to think that things would stay the same?

I remember the holes in your fence...
and the way the downpours would rinse...
all our troubles down the storm drains and it meant the world.
And it meant the whole damn thing.
Until we are engulfed in flame,
but there's no need to worry about that now it's a long ways out.
